Facebook Inviting Devs to Apply
Facebook Inviting Devs to Apply

If your aim is to join Facebook's inner circle of elite developers now is the time to prepare your case. Facebook is currently inviting submissions from developers who think they can make the grade.

Facebook's Preferred Developer Consultant Programme is global but relatively small, with about 90 members. According to the blog post, Announcing the Fall Submission Round for the PDC Program:

These companies focus on integrating with Facebook Pages, Open Graph, Insights, Ads, and mobile. Most have been building on Facebook Platform since it was launched, and all are adept in understanding Platform policy and development tools. Typically, these companies have a long track record of providing Facebook-centric services to large Fortune 500 businesses or sections of the small and medium business markets before successfully joining the PDC program.

So gaining admittance to this arena isn't just going to be a matter of filling in the application form. In fact the blog makes the difficulties you face explicit:

Submissions should be as detailed as possible. Please also note that our strict selection criteria keeps our acceptance rate quite low, so potential applicants without a strong existing portfolio of demonstrated excellence in social app and tool development should wait to apply until their track record is more established.



So the door for entry may be open - but only a crack.

The submission deadline is December 6
