Facebook Tutorial

In my last entry I made a point to comment on all those people out there that create tutorials that are a total waste of time. Today I come to you to talk about one tutorial that was a life saver.

Last week I stumbled upon a tutorial on FBML, the Facebook Markup Language which is used to create applications that are run through the Facebook site. I was so impressed with how good the tutorial was that I just had to give this guy credit.

If you find yourself in need of a good Facebook tutorial visit http://fbtutorial.computerbeacon.net/section1/default.aspx. I promise you won’t be disappointed with what you read. His tutorial is full of detailed instructions, great screen shots of the code and more. He even offers a downloadable sample application which I found amazing.

I don’t do this often, as a matter of fact, I’ve never written anything positive about someone I don’t even know. This guy’s tutorial helped me out of a jam and for that I’m very grateful.

Social Networking is big now and many companies are calling out for any developer that knows how to put their message in Facebook, Tweeter and the like. I can now answer the call with confidence because of the work of someone I don’t even know.

How amazing is that? Thanks Kayson Wong.

Good Intentions with Tutorials

You have to give credit to all those individuals that take time out to create tutorials that help others overcome obstacles they run into when trying to implement something new. I’ll be the first to bow down to those individuals, they’ve saved me from dissaster time and time again.

Today’s blog isn’t about those people though, it’s about those that create tutorials that are so hard to follow and so full of errors you wish they had not done the tutorial in the first place. You know who I’m talking about, the ones that write tutorials for Facebook using an API that is 3 versions old and no longer supported by Facebook.

Or maybe its the one that writes a tutorial on how to create a Facebook application using asp.net and mvc that does not work, does not have a forum you can go to for help and when it does gets you no replies unless you are prasing the writer. Yeap, that’s the one I’m talking about today.

Why do people engage in such a practice? Are the emails and forum postings not enough to tell them that their writing sucks?

I just spent a whole week trying to find tutorials that would help me create a Facebook application. I found several that, at first glance, looked promissing. I downloaded the sample code, reviewed it, and found it to be a complete waste of my time. Others I downloaded the sample code and found it to be very well written so I proceeded to walk through the tutorial only to find out that the sample app did not work at all. What a waste of a good week!
