New Sessions at the Ajax Experience

Category: The Ajax Experience

The Ajax Experience is coming up in a week and I wanted to share some exciting last minute developments:

1. Google Chrome. Google’s Ojan Vafai will be giving a keynote on their new browser. Obviously, this should be interesting. :-)

2. Opera. We’ve been trying to get them at the show from the beginning. Opera’s Anne van Kesteran presenting on “Opera and Ajax”.

3. Ext JS. We’ve got two great Ext JS talks! Jack Slocum is speaking on “Advanced CSS and Theming of Ext” and Aaron Conran will present “Hands-on Ext“.

4. Cappuccino / Objective-J. The folks behind the framework behind the impressive 280slides.com on-line presentation site are giving a lightning talk introducing their framework as well as a full-length presentation entitled “The Road to Cappuccino.”

5. Processing.js. John Resig’s port of Processing to JavaScript–Processing.js–is amazing. Come hear him talk about it in detail.

6. Hacking NetFlix. Bill Scott of NetFlix talks about their new rich open Ajax APIs. Hint: it’s not just about queue management and it’s pretty exciting stuff.

7. Episodes. Client-side performance guru Steve Souders has added another talk to his Ajax Experience quiver discussing an entirely new way to benchmark “Web 2.0” applications.

And that’s just the new stuff! We’ve got plenty of other goodness in the agenda. Hope you can join us!

Some of these new sessions look great. Are these sessions going to be added to the “Agenda” section when registering for TAE. They currently don’t appear: https://www.regonline.com/Registrations/Sessions/Sessions.asp

FWIW, my last name is actually “van Kesteren” and I’ll be speaking about Ajax 2.0, not some boring company pitch :-)

@biglep: Hmm, not sure what that link is all about. Use the “agenda” link in the article above.

@Anne: Sorry for the typo! To be fair, your own company sent us the wrong spelling. :-)
