Ajax Experience Conference Site Live

Category: The Ajax Experience

After wading through virtual piles of talk submissions and negotiating with the usual suspects, we’ve put together the content for the next Ajax Experience show (Boston, Oct. 23-25). We were pretty happy with how things turned out at the San Francisco show we put on earlier, and apparently all of you who attended were, too:

Satisfaction graphics

Note that 89% of the attendees rated their overall experience 4 out of 5 or higher, and pretty much everyone said they’d recommend the show to others. We tried to keep the focus of the conference on what our conference partner Jay Zimmerman calls “no fluff, just stuff” (i.e., high quality technical content and speaker access) and it looks like that is indeed what folks wanted.

To try and top the high bar set by the last show, we’re increasing the amount of content (now 50 sessions versus the 35 we had at the last show — still 90 minutes long), adding a whole new category of content — User Experience, and of course, trying to improve the swag a bit.

Head over to www.theajaxexperience.com and take take a look at the session listing and agenda. It always helps to have folks register as early as possible, so we’ve tried to put together something motivating for all “early bird” registrants (including an iPod Shuffle — and for our TAE alumni, an iPod Nano). Hope to see you there!

Completely off topic – what did you use to produce the graphs?

Comment by Tom Cunningham — August 24, 2006

What Tom said, I was thinking the same question.

Comment by ag — August 24, 2006

I’m in in the same camp as Tom on this post.

What produced the nice pie charts?

Comment by Richard — August 24, 2006

Looks like Apple’s Keynote to me, guys…

Come to the Ajax Experience and find out! ;-) I had a graphic artist friend whip them up — I’ll ping him.

Comment by Ben Galbraith — August 24, 2006

Here’s the word: “they were made in Adobe Illustrator CS2, using it’s graphing and 3-D capabilities (and some secret methods!).”

I’ll miss another one

Hump :(

I was hoping for something far less resource-hungry. Can’t he find us a nice click and forget solution :)

I really enjoyed the San Francisco event. I hope to attend again next year. However, one disappointing thing was that I never got the podcasts for the sessions.

Did anyone else have this issue or was it just me?

Comment by Oliver Tse — August 24, 2006

Oliver: We’re running slower than we wanted to on getting the content for the first event out and available, but we’re going to make it available to all attendees soon… let me ping the folks responsible and see what the timeline is.

Comment by Ben Galbraith — August 24, 2006

Oliver: From the responsible party: “Video/Audio content will be available Monday, August 28th – everyone who attended will receive an email with further instructions.” So — your wait will soon be over.

Sooooo, not to be a party pooper, but that graph on the right, while pretty, is totally wrong. The 4 piece of the pie is quite obviously bigger than 50% while it’s apparently only supposed to represent 45%. What’s going on?

Comment by Sean McBride — August 24, 2006

Sean: Don’t question it, just enjoy the pretty 3D and drop shadows.

ooooooooohh…..drop shadows….

Comment by Rob Sanheim — August 24, 2006

hey, what was used to create those pie-charts? :) What online apps or open source goodies could be found?

Comment by janis:L — August 25, 2006

if the recent entries go to “page not found”, then remove them. Don’t be so damn cheap. This site really is going down hill!

Comment by ajaxianfading — August 25, 2006

Hi Ben,

Thanks for the podcast info.
I really look forward to listening to the sessions that I missed!

[…] Ajaxian wrote a note about the upcoming Ajax Experience conference in Boston, of course. Last one was in San Francisco. Of course. […]

ajaxianfading: If comments were less ambiguous, it might help us respond faster. Not sure why the Mooglets post is broken; I’ll check into that. Thanks for letting us know.

Comment by Ben Galbraith — August 25, 2006

Sean: Not sure if you or anyone else still cares about this, but I checked into it a bit more and found the problem — the artist had the wrong values in the key. They should have been:
5 – 34%
4 – 55%
3 – 11%
2 – >1% (only 3 “2” ratings)
1 – 0% (no “1” ratings)
I’ll have him correct that as soon as he’s able.

Comment by Ben Galbraith — August 25, 2006

ajaxianfading: Mooglets link fixed.

Comment by Ben Galbraith — August 25, 2006

Sean: I just uploaded a new version of the graph with the correct key.
