Ajax Pub Nite: Toronto, Jan 14th

Category: Announcements

Being a Londoner, how can I not mention a pub night that relates to Ajax technology!

Brent Ashley has created the first Ajax Pub Nite for Monday January 14th in Toronto.

Hopefully this is the first pub nite of many. If anyone is up for a Bay Area Ajaxian pub crawl let me know.

Brent Ashley enlightened me with a demo of his JSRS (Javascript Remote Scripting) library back in 2002, long before “Ajax” was what we called it.

It completely changed the way I thought about web programming. At the time I was building the back-end for http://www.footballfanatics.com, which had an inventory of over 50,000 items. Without Ajax the interface was cumbersome and slow to use. What I learned from Brent helped me to turn it into something agile and slick. I never looked back.

Thank you Brent, for being a pioneer in the evolution of the web. If I still lived in Toronto I would certainly buy you a pint tonight.
