AJAX-Driven Websites: Under The Hood

Asynchronous JavaScript, XML, and more!

ASP.Net 2.0
ASP.Net 2.0 significantly enhances the scripting model to incorporate this methodology. They call it script callbacks instead of Ajax. It works essentially the same as I described earlier, but ASP.Net 2.0 takes it a step further by providing tools and support. For a comprehensive explanation of script callbacks in ASP.Net 2.0, take a look at this article: http://msdn.microsoft.com/msdnmag/issues/04/08/CuttingEdge/.

Considerations
1.  Ajax blurs the line between correct tiering techniques since much of the work has been moved to the client. Consideration should be given when designing such applications using an emerging methodology. The client (browser) is doing more of the processing work, and the JavaScript to accomplish this is fairly complex. It's handling keystrokes, mouse clicks, interaction with the DOM, processing of these events, and data coordination with the server.

2.  It should also be noted that many users might not want to run JavaScript on their browsers. Your Web site audience is a consideration.

3.  The name Ajax is not official. The folks at Adaptive Path are given credit for this catchy name. In ASP.Net 2.0, it is referred to as "script callbacks."

Cloud-Native thinking and Serverless Computing are now the norm in financial services, manufacturing, telco, healthcare, transportation, energy, media, entertainment, retail and other consumer industries, as well as the public sector. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential. DevOpsSUMMIT at CloudEXPO expands the DevOps community, enable a wide sharing of knowledge, and educate delegates and technology providers alike.
In a recent survey, Sumo Logic surveyed 1,500 customers who employ cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). According to the survey, a quarter of the respondents have already deployed Docker containers and nearly as many (23 percent) are employing the AWS Lambda serverless computing framework. It's clear: serverless is here to stay. The adoption does come with some needed changes, within both application development and operations. That means serverless is also changing the way we leverage public clouds. Truth-be-told, many enterprise IT shops were so happy to get out of the management of physical servers within a data center that many limitations of the existing public IaaS clouds were forgiven. However, now that we've lived a few years with public IaaS clouds, developers and CloudOps pros are giving a huge thumbs down to the...
Kubernetes is an open source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. Kubernetes was originally built by Google, leveraging years of experience with managing container workloads, and is now a Cloud Native Compute Foundation (CNCF) project. Kubernetes has been widely adopted by the community, supported on all major public and private cloud providers, and is gaining rapid adoption in enterprises. However, Kubernetes may seem intimidating and complex to learn. This is because Kubernetes is more of a toolset than a ready solution. Hence it’s essential to know when and how to apply the appropriate Kubernetes constructs.
To enable their developers, ensure SLAs and increase IT efficiency, Enterprise IT is moving towards a unified, centralized approach for managing their hybrid infrastructure. As if the journey to the cloud - private and public - was not difficult enough, the need to support modern technologies such as Containers and Serverless applications further complicates matters. This talk covers key patterns and lessons learned from large organizations for architecting your hybrid cloud in a way that: Supports self-service, "public cloud" experience for your developers that's consistent across any infrastructure. Gives Ops peace of mind with automated management of DR, scaling, provisioning, deployments, etc.
