A few weeks ago we met up with Ryan Powers, Jonathan Schuster and Kevin Marshall from Clarity Consulting to talk about a project they've been working on called Facebook Developer Toolkit. The initial project was a collaboration with the Microsoft Visual Studio Express team in Redmond and is now an open source project hosted on CodePlex. If you're a .NET developer and want to start building applications for the Facebook platform, you definitely need to check out the Facebook Developer Toolkit. If you'd like to contribute to the project, head on over to the Facebook Developer Toolkit Project Page.
