WPF and SL developers using Twitter

Yesterday I found the list of iPhone developers that are on Twitter.  Today I decided to start a google spreadsheet Twitter list that has all the WPF and Silverlight developers on it.  If you want your name on the list just go to this form.

You’ll also be able to follow all of these users at once by downloading this ruby script (originally provided for the iPhone developer Twitter list by David Clement – thanks David!) and running it using the following instructions (feel free to skip steps 2 through 5 if you know you already have the updated Ruby version, twitter gem, and google spreadsheet gem):

  1. Open Terminal
  2. Update Ruby by typing: gem update --system
  3. Install the Twitter gem: sudo gem install Twitter
  4. Add the google spreadsheet gem source location: gem sources -a http://gems.github.com
  5. Install the google spreadsheet gem: sudo gem install gimite-google-spreadsheet-ruby
  6. Open up the .rb file you downloaded from here in TextEdit
  7. Enter your google and twitter usernames and passwords (it’s safe, look at the code!)
  8. Save the file!
  9. In Terminal, navigate to the .rb file you downloaded from here and type: ruby follow_wpf_sl_devs.rb

Let me know if you have any questions. Happy tweeting!  Special thanks to the original iPhone developer twitter list and David Clement for the ruby script.

    If you tweet @devinsblog from the account that you want removed I’ll take you off the list. They don’t have a form for removal!
