The Ajax Experience East: Early Bird Deadline Approaching

Category: Conferences, The Ajax Experience

Time is flying by. This Friday (9/14) is the Early Bird deadline for The Ajax Experience East coast conference, taking place on October 24-26th in Boston.

There are a few changes taking place at this conference that I want to fill you in on:

  • Tutorials: We had people asking for a set of tutorials, so we created a day of them which are included with your conference fee. These are perfect for beginners, or those in need of a quick brush-up. These 90 minute sessions are offered pre-conference, to eliminate any concerns you might have about pre-requisites, and get you ready for the full 3 days of technical sessions where you can jump into more advanced content. You can see the list of tutorials which includes Ben and I getting you up to speed on Ajax, David Verba of Adaptive Path discussing the design challenges of Ajax applications, and John Resig giving a rich overview of JavaScript libraries.
  • There are a bunch of new speakers, including Paul Baukaus, Becky Gibson, Ted Husted, Carla Mott, Adam Peller, Stuart Halloway, Alex Russell, Chris Schalk, Tenni Theurer, David Verba.
  • There are some exciting new sessions, including The Future of JavaScript (John Resig), Accessibility & Internationalization w/ Dojo, Refactotum: JavaScript (Stuart Halloway), Ensuring a Quality Web Experience (Patrick Lightbody – no abstract yet), Ajax on Struts, Retrofitting Struts with Ajax Taglibs (both with Ted Husted), Advanced JSON (Kris Zyp).
  • We had our best panels every in San Francisco, so we hope that continues with an Ask The Experts, and Ajax Futures panel at this event. Got questions? Come along.

As always, the highlight of the show for me is getting you all together. In San Francisco we saw a crew discussing what became the end of browser possesion. The hallways are always buzzing, and I learn a lot about what the community is thinking, and where it is going.

Come join us again, and if you register by Sept 28th you will be eligible for an iPhone giveaway. Also, books and a few iPod Touch devices will also be featured giveaways for all attendees on-site.

I would like to draw your attention to an AJAX paradigm shift. One should be aware that I am not, and do not pretend to be objective. Visual WebGui is an open source rapid application development framework for graphic user interfaces of IT web applications. It replaces the obsolete paradigms of ASP.NET which were designed for developing sites, with WinForms methodologies, which were designed for developing applications. Thus enabling designer that was designed for application.This provides the developer with an extremely efficient way to design interfaces using drag and drop instead of hand coding HTML. VWG doesn’t expose logic, data or open services on client requests and therefore is not as vulnerable as common AJAX solution. Worth a look –
