Friday, July 28th, 2006>p> In his latest blog post, Eric Pascarello asks the question “Is Ajax development slowing down?” Is the shiny new coating of this revolution in web development finally wearing a bit thin, causing people to move on or not innovate like they used to?
I was asked an interesting question by a friend the other day. “Is Ajax development slowing down?”
I noticed the same trend; I just did not really think that it was a big issue. It seems that there is a slow down in the amount of information that is coming out on the net.
He doesn’t seem to think that there is a real slowdown in Ajax development, it’s just a perception. He gives four reasons why this seems so:
- It is SUMMER in the northern hemisphere! (more outside, less inside = less code)
- Seems like frameworks are maturing and that people are fully developing applications before they release them.
- Seems like people are focusing on more of the technical issues of Ajax now and not the wow factors.
- It really seems like new developers in the realm of Ajax are taking their time looking at what Ajax has to offer. They are looking at frameworks versus a custom solution.
