Adaptive Path and Workshop

Category: Workshop

Adaptive Path and Ajaxian have teamed up to provide an Ajax workshop.

The first workshop, Designing and Building Ajax, will take place in Chicago on December 8th, 2005.

Workshop Information

The impact of Ajax for Web applications covers a wide range of issues: business strategy, technology, design, team structure and processes are all potentially affected by the move to Ajax. In this one-day event, we’ll look at Ajax from all angles. Jesse James Garrett from Adaptive Path will cover the strategic consequences of Ajax for the industry, and talk about best practices for Ajax application design. Then, Dion Almaer and Ben Galbraith of will cover the basic technologies and development approaches that go into creating Ajax applications.

In this workshop you’ll learn about:

  • Basic advantages of the Ajax approach
  • Strategic implications of Ajax
  • Why Ajax changes the rules of Web design
  • Design principles for Ajax applications
  • Approaches to documenting Ajax design solutions
  • Managing team collaboration on Ajax projects
  • How to write an Ajax application
  • Using popular Ajax libraries for rapid development and dynamic UI effects
  • Making Ajax applications work offline
  • How Ajax works on various server-side platforms

We would love some of the community at the event. What do you want to see at such an event? Where else would you like to see a workshop?

We also have a lot of fun showing that Google Maps is rocket science, but on the geocoding side NOT the web UI side!

I’m very interested in coming to this workshop. It’s also a good excuse to go to Chicago for the first time :) It’d be nice if there was a list of who’s going, so everyone can see what other “famous faces” of the Ajax community will be there. Will there be any demos being shown?

Hi Joe –

We will absolutely be showing demos. This will be real world “how to build X” stuff, including how to make Google Maps from scratch, how to build offline capable apps, etc.
