Android integration with Facebook and Twitter:

Are you an Android developer who wants to integrate your app with Twitter and Facebook so that your end user can:

1. Login with Twitter

2. Post messages to Twitter

It’s not so hard to achieve these two - if you know what you are doing. And the steps below should make it easy for you to achieve the desired results.

I did find it easier to integrate Facebook than integrating Twitter. And you will see why. So let’s get the difficult one out of the way and handle the Twitter integration.

Twitter integration with Android:

The basic steps are:

1. You have to create an Account on Twitter before you do anything.

2. Register you application with Twitter here (

3. Create the Activity to enter your tweet

4. Authenticate users and let the user grant you access to your application so your application can post on his/her stream

Path of least resistance - Go Android

I have developed applications on the three of the most common platforms - iPhone, Android and BlackBerry. Did I hear someone say what about MS and Nokia?

Setup your own Drupal in the Amazon EC2

in Amazon, AWS, Cloud, CloudComputing, Drupal, Drupal, Drupal Planet, Drupal Planet, ec2, setup

Amazon AWS + Drupal

(Some familiarity with Amazon AWS is assumed.)

I have always wanted to setup a high performance Drupal on an AWS EC2. There are several advantages of running your website (or web application) on the AWS. Amazon EC2 creates and provisions virtual Linux (or Windows) servers for you and charge you an hourly rate for usage.

With AWS, it becomes easy to distribute and share the Drupal image with others. And of course it is much easier to scale and is definitely cheaper. You can have different virtual servers running the search engine, database and application servers, therefore all scaling independently of each other.

With the introduction of Micro instances and better yet, free micro instances, the barrier to entry for a new user has really dropped. 

I assume you have or can create an Amazon AWS account and use their management console. These aspects are very well covered in Amazon's site and I will not get into the details of creating an account, etc. Amazon has done a great job of creating the documentation and tutorials for getting started.

I will show how to:

1. Setup a LAMP stack on Ubuntu

2. Setup Drupal on the LAMP stack

3. How to install phpmyadmin

4. Configure the database to reside in the EBS instead of the ephemeral instance storage.
