For those that don’t know, the Live Framework was announced at PDC back in October and is part of the Windows Live Platform. At the moment, you can only actually develop using the LiveFX if you have been given a token, which you then have to redeem at http://lx.azure.microsoft.com/.
So what does the LiveFX offer you? Well, at the moment, it allows you to access the contacts of a user as well as their Mesh objects (yes, this is what you need if you wish to create any MeshApps). I’ve written a few articles on LiveSide just giving some brief examples of code using the LiveFX (links below), but there are many more on the web that you can easily find.
And the best bit is, now you can run the Live Mesh client and the LiveFX Client simultaneously!
So what do you need to get one of these tokens? Well, as twitter seems to be the Internet medium of choice at the moment, you have to do is complete the following sentence: “If I had a LiveFX token I would…” and put what you would use the LiveFX token for. For your tweet, you don’t need to include my part of the sentence, just put what you would do with the token and put #livefxtoken at the end. So for example, “Build a Mesh enabled rocket ship #livefxtoken”. It’s as simple as that. I will see those tweets and make a decision on which one I think would be the coolest to do (or makes me laugh the most, whichever).
