I know.. sensational blog tile: Collaboration on social platform results in LIKE! But here is the back story: A few weeks ago I was hacking around my blog template in an attempt to integrate the Facebook LIKE widget for my blog entries. Sounds simple right? Not quite... as the Velocity templates that the blogs here at developerWorks use have no documentation that I'm aware of.
Here is where it gets interesting: My fellow blogger, Corretgé is also trying to do the same... and he appends a question on the dW feedback message board. We exchange notes, and I quickly bring in the big technical hammer.. Jay Allen, our resident expert. Low and behold, Jay adds the last required ingredient.. and presto! We now have Facebook LIKE neatly integrated into our blogs. What a great example of the value of social collaboration!
For those bloggers interested, here is the blog template to update and add LIKE to your own dW blog.
Any developerWorks member is welcome to have a blog here at My developerWorks.. just request one!
