On occasion, IBM runs an excellent two day Social Business Application Development workshop, which takes users through the Social Business Toolkit SDK, and how it can be used to create applications that leverage IBM Connections content.
Sadly these workshops have not been scheduled yet in 2014. However, the course materials are available for free download from the IBM Greenhouse to be used on a self-paced basis:
The Social Business Toolkit (SBT) SDK is a set of extensible tools and resources for developers who want to incorporate social capabilities into their applications and business processes. Social capabilities include features and functionality that tap into the power of social interactions, business networks, community-based problem solving, and more.
- Learn how to create your own social application development sandbox
- Learn how to build and deploy iWidgets
- Learn how to integrate into the IBM Connections Activity Stream using OpenSocial and Embedded Experiences
- Learn how to leverage existing IBM resources to build and promote your applications to clients
Materials: Social Business Application Development
This course is recommended for any developers that wish to utilise the SBT or bring social content into their own applications. Kudos to IBM for making this available to all…
