OpenSocial is a standard for the social web managed by the OpenSocial foundation. Introduced by 18 social sites in november 2007, after 8 months OpenSocial is available to 275 million users, 2000 applications have been developed and 10 million users are using them daily.

The session will start with a status of OpenSocial after a year: the ecosystem that formed around the API: social sites, developers, advertisers, tool vendors, IT consulting firms, enterprise software vendors.

For developers of social application, the OpenSocial API JavaScript and REST APIs will be described, with demos of how to build a social application using each API.

For developers of social sites, or sites that want to become OpenSocial containers, the OpenSocial reference implementation is developed as an open source project, Apache Shindig, with a Java and PHP flavors. The stated goal of Shindig is to enable a social site developer to implement OpenSocial support on her site in 2 weeks. The Shindig Java architecture will be explained, followed by a demo of how to connect Shindig to a MySql backend.

Various related projects will also be demoed:

- Friend Connect, a Google offering enabling web sites to add social capabilities with a few lines of javascript.

- Socialsite, a Sun open source project based on Shindig, enabling web sites to become social sites with their own community, using gadgets to provide a user interface to manage the network.

- OpenSocket, a hosted service that allows OpenSocial applications to be deployed on Facebook.
