Facebook application/Ruby on Rails mashup

Posted in Facebook, Rails, Ruby by sausheong on October 10, 2007

Been busy fiddling around with Facebook application development, came up with one for my upcoming Ruby on Rails mashup book.

http://apps.facebook.com/job_board

This application allows you (as the Facebook user) to search for jobs (currently using Indeed.com) using information from your work history, education history and current location. The list of jobs can then be displayed on an online map (Google Maps) and news (from DayLife) and blog entries (from Technorati) can be displayed about the company that posted the job. The application is written with Ruby on Rails using RFacebook.

If you want to know how I wrote this application, remember to check out my book when it comes out!
