RailsConf 2009: Twitter on Rails
Twitter’s content and APIs make it one of the best targets around for creating mashups. It’s now easier than ever to do so using TwitterAuth, a Rails gem/plugin that utilizes Twitter as a Single Sign-on provider (SSO).
Material will include:
- Generating a TwitterAuth application using Rails templates
- Navigating the Twitter API
- Harnessing the power of Twitter Search
- Watching an entire application get built…live!
