You will first look at the process of registering your client application. Following this, you will explore the different supported workflows, their differences, and when they should be used. Once this groundwork is laid, you will put that knowledge to use by creating a sample application that talks to Facebook using OAuth 2.0.

In addition, you will look at important security considerations for your application. Finally, you will understand the different implications of making a native mobile application versus a traditional web application.
