I would REALLY appreciate some very simple "getting started" documentation. As you can see from my comments in January there is simply no usable documentation and my time spent on this project was a complete and total failure.
I agree with those who have been reading 10 articles - there is a lot of old and inaccurate information out there on the net. This package must work since folks are using it; however, there is simply no documentation to help new users get started.
Add to that, the demos provided don't work! (With one exception.)
It would also be GREAT to have some VERY simple demo applications: for example a simple "facebook connect" authentication (including MD5 hash) would be wonderful. Also, a simple applicatiion that obtained data from facebook - such as the
user's name - and made it available in the C# application rather than just as a display variable in an FBML page. Once again, please keep this stuff VERY simple - no need to pepper it up with lots of add-ins like fancy css, master pages, LINQ, etc.
"Hello World" is a great level.
I would suggest several small projects - ideas that quickly come to mind are:
1) How to install
2) Implementing Facebook Connect
3) Connecting & retrieving facebook data into ASP.NET / VB / C# variables
4) Built in functions - friends/etc.
Since you're doing this in the near future I hope that others will suggest topics ASAP! Now it the time folks!
I truly wish that I could help at this point - and I promise I will contribute if I can get something working!
Today I'm back in "PHP world" to get another fb-application on-line.
