Learn the basics of building complex, data-driven applications with the Facebook PHP SDK and MySQL. Author Ray Villalobos first introduces the fundamentals, such as checking to see if a user is logged into an application, accessing Facebook user data through the Open Graph API, and making complex API calls with the Graph API Explorer. The course then dives into building an application with API paths and Facebook Query Language (FQL) calls. Along the way, you'll discover how to post to a user's wall, upload photos, integrate with webpages, and more.
Hey there, this is Ray Villalobos, and welcome to Facebook Applications with the PHP SDK. In this course I'm going to show you how to download, install, and work with the Facebook Software Development Kit for the PHP language. I'll show you how to check if a user is logged into your application, using just the PHP SDK and how to access basic Open Graph data. Then we'll examine how to build paths to create complex Graph API calls with the Graph API Explorer. We'll also take a look at how FQL--Facebook's Query Language--works and how it differs from using API path.
Finally, I'll show you how to build a real application with the PHP SDK using both paths and FQL calls to the Graph API. We'll be covering all these features and more, so let's get started with Facebook Applications with the PHP SDK.
