Audible Ajax 16: March State of Ajax

Category: Podcasts

Download Episode 16

Ben and I discuss the recent news, grab the IE team to ask them about IE 7, and get Jamis Buck of 37 Signals to talk about scalability of Campfire.

What we cover on the podcast

Future of Web Browsers

Question to the IE team: “What have you been doing, and why have you made us wait for so long for a new release?”

Question from the community

In this episode we answered a question emailed in by Mitchell: “How scalable are these ajax based chat applications like Campfire?”.

We cornered Jamis Buck of 37 Signals, to get the answer from the horses mouth!

The Ajax Experience

We announced a new track at the conference to keep up with demand. Please join the community for our first developer focus event in May at The Ajax Experience.

Please email podcast [at] ajaxian.com with any feedback and especially if you have anything that you want us to chat about in future ‘casts!

Your podcasts are downloading very slowly, around 20 KB/second, even if I try a wget from my web host.

Getting Real – the book
