    Invention And She’s Geeky 2012

    By Anna Billstrom (Developer, Momentus Media)

    I really want to find this picture of my great-grandfather standing in front of his car, that has a license plate with a big circle cut out of the center. He’s showing off his invention. A way of keeping your car from being stolen. You take the center of the license out with you when you leave the car. Ta-da.

    Inventing things is so much fun! OK blog post is done.

    Alright, more background: She’s Geeky is an “unconference” that is, a loosely self-organized conference based on

    Better Luck Bootstrapping with B2B Businesses

    By Carina Koo (Co-Founder, Momentus Media)

    Now that we’re a startup with some success, we meet a lot of people who want to learn from our story. Since we started playing with Facebook over a year ago, we’ve built Facebook apps and marketing campaigns used by millions of people. But one of the things people find most interesting is how we are bootstrapped.

    The short version: We built a simple product that was meant to be sold right from the get-go.

    How To Make a Simple Facebook App in 20 Minutes

    By Anna Billstrom (Developer, Momentus Media)

    Facebook apps can be as complicated as Frontierville, or as simple as a Facebook app that simply announces to all your Facebook friends, “I’m pregnant!”

    Last weekend, a dozen SF-WOW attendees built from scratch a Facebook app to announce a pregnancy to their friends. The workshop is based on a blog post I wrote: Making a Simple Facebook App in 20 Minutes.

    We covered the core aspects of Facebook development, namely OAuth2.0 and the Graph API.

    Check out the Facebook app we built in 20 minutes! Visit http://apps.facebook.com/impregnant and the blog post with instructions on how to get your own Facebook app up and running in 20 minutes. Be sure to check out the links at the bottom of the post (“Further Reading”) for access to FB API documentation.

    Intro slides from the “Making a Simple Facebook App in 20 Minutes” workshop are below.
