Homepage Survival Guide: How to Raise Content from the Dead

TNT5 Content Track

Foothills II


In this session, we’ll showcase how we used our braaaains to bring content from many different sources to life by adding an institutional lifestream to our homepage. This stream combines Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Foursquare, Flickr, blog and RSS items from multiple accounts into one listing. For 45 minutes we'll create a stronghold with food, water and basic supplies (bring your weapon of choice) and discuss how we became infected with the idea, developed a solution to manage the hordes and found immunizations to keep the content plague from spreading out of control.
