fb dev

Whoever the hell wrote the facebook “demo application” “Footprints” owes me an hour of my life back, and some peace and sound mind. Call me crazy but a demo and library kit should work out of the box, and not require me to, um, comment out swathes of your code to avoid PHP parsing errors. And by swathes of your code, I mean those segments of code which you said should work just fine with PHP4, yet nonetheless uses try-catch blocks. Moreover, who the fuck thought wikis as a substitute for developer documentation was a good idea??? Dev-community-written documentation is by large a clusterfuck.

Update: if you too are interested in becoming a facebook developer, please do not forget to stop off at the Video section for a dose from the Zuckertron 1000.
