The new Facebook platform is an incredible software platform and can easily be extended using the provided SDK. The following code project article is an introduction into creating a very simple MSN Messenger or Yahoo! Messenger type application for Facebook.

In this first article I will provide an overview of how to setup your facebook application and to write a very basic WPF application that connects to Facebook and populate your friends list.

Silverlight Controls and a Touch of LINQ in Orcas Beta 1

In a previous post I took a look at building a simple Silverlight application in Visual Studio Orcas. This post shows how to add a button control that comes with the Silverlight SDK. You can see the button in Figure 1. I will also add a few lines of code to show how to use LINQ inside Silverlight.

Figure 01: A simple button of the type that comes with the Silverlight Alpha 1.1 SDK.

In this post I’ll also show how to handle an event initiated by a click on the button. The event will cause the text in the button to change.
