Your friend is going to need to send you the special link so that you can access the calendar; you can't simply derive it from someone's account name.

Near the bottom of the calendar settings page on the "Calendar details" tab are buttons to get the links. It looks like this:

calendar links

Depending on what you need you'll want the data from the XML, ICAL or HTML buttons.

Here's what an HTML link looks like:

HTML link to a calendar

The XML button provide an RSS feed, while the iCal button will point to an .ics file.

However, in order to access the calendar, you'll still need to log in to Google with your credentials once you click the link. If your web app can do that, then you're in good shape. If not, well, that's beyond the scope of this site.
