I’ve created a WordPress plugin which creates an iCal feed from your blog posts. It creates a calendar which can be added to pretty much any popular website (such as Google Calendar) or application (such as Microsoft Outlook).
I built this because I wanted to see when I made my WordPress posts, in a more graphical interface. I already used Google Calendar, so I would have loved to see my posts right in my calendar.
It’s time I dispel some of the mystery surrounding the Facebook Applications that I have been spending my time building these past few months. I’ve mentioned in previous posts that I have been spending time building Facebook Applications on the Platform. Well, it’s time I mentioned what I’ve been working on.
A large number of the applications that I’ve built from the ground up with a partner (who wishes to remain nameless) consists of one group, which are basically TV shows, and another group, which contain several sports.
I’ve been working with the Facebook Platform for a few weeks now, and I have built a few dozen applications on it. It’s been a very interesting experience so far, not only because I have access to millions of users immediately, but also because of the unique development environment that is offered to me right from the start.
Developing for the Facebook platform is very different from other environments that I have worked with, including vBulletin when I was building forums, and WordPress when I was working at b5media, a blog network.
