Facebook is not just a Social Networking site but also an application development platform. Several new applications on Facebook have experienced spectacular success. We will learn and discuss what sort of applications are being developed on Facebook and understand what features it provides for developers.
The discussion will be led by Zeki Mokhtarzada, co-founder and CTO ofFreewebs.com. Freewebs is one of the hottest Web 2.0 companies in the DC region. As CTO and head of Freewebs’ engineering team, Zeki is the architect behind the scalable Freewebs backend and server architecture supporting tens of millions of visitors. A “Facebook Development Day” at Freewebs resulted inWarbook, a wildly successful game on the new platform. The recently launched strategy game has already attracted 150,000 users daily on Facebook. Prior to co-founding Freewebs, Zeki was employee number one at WebOS, where he was instrumental in some of the leading edge innovations in the on demand applications space. Zeki double majored in mathematics and computer science at the University of Maryland.
