"Real-World AJAX" One-Day Seminar Arrives in Silicon Valley

"Real-World Ajax was ... the first major Ajax Event in the World" says Backbase News Blog of February event

The first "Real-World AJAX" event, held in New York City, featured 15 speakers in 11 sessions, including many of the the world's most renowned AJAX experts, and more than 400 delegates attended while more than 15,000 SYS-CON.TV viewers tuned into the simulcast on March 13, 2006. Backbase news blog called it "a great day, and certainly the first major Ajax Event in the World!" Today, just ten weeks on, SYS-CON Events' timely "Real-World AJAX" comes to Silicon Valley, to San Jose at its very heart, and the Faculty lineup is if anything even more stellar than it was in NYC, including Google's Adam Bosworth and Paul Rademacher, Yahoo!'s Eric Miraglia, Laszlo's David Temkin and the father of the term "AJAX" himself, Jesse James Garrett.

“By now there isn't a software developer on earth who isn't aware of the collection of programming technologies known as AJAX,” said the Conference Chair of the "Real-World AJAX" Seminar Series, Jeremy Geelan, group publisher and editorial director of SYS-CON Media. “But you can't bank awareness. So, how in concrete terms can you take advantage in your own projects of this newly popular way of delivering online content to users without reloading an entire page? How soon can you be monetizing AJAX? This "Real-World AJAX" One-Day Seminar aims to answer these exact questions."

Led by the father of the term "AJAX" himself, the charismatic Jesse James Garrett of Adaptive Path, "Real-World AJAX" - Geelan said - has one overriding organizing principle:

"Its aim is to make sure that delegates fortunate enough to secure themselves a place before they're all sold out will leave the seminar with a sufficient grasp of Asynchronous JavaScript and XML to enable them to build their first AJAX application on their own when they get back to their office."

"Its aim is to make sure that delegates fortunate enough to secure themselves a place before they're all sold out will leave the seminar with a sufficient grasp of Asynchronous JavaScript and XML to enable them to build their first AJAX application on their own when they get back to their office."

Is SYS-CON.TV going to be streaming this?

Security issues? 04/24/06 08:59:01 AM EDT

Billy Hoffman, a security researcher for SPI Dynamics in Atlanta, Georgia, had been pondering the risks of Ajax. He outlined his worst-case scenario at the American security conference Black Hat Federal in January. He called it the "1929 Virus", named for the stock market crash that preceded the Great Depression. Hoffman envisioned such a "cross-site script" making its way into a forum post, user profile or web-based stock ticker.

Strongly associated with the new Web 2.0 term, Ajax today is everbody's darling.

Inspired by the promise and the developer uptake of Ajax, I thought on doing a reality check on one of my favorite pets: container managed security, authentication in particular. There are a couple of issues that just don't work well with container managed security.

All the Ajax methods and libraries SUCK! I was under the impression that Xerox PARK invented GUI and both Apple and Microsoft perfected the technologies and created excellent reusable GUI Classes..

Why are you debating among many inferior methods when we can build reusable Ajax GUI Classes to build superior online applications?
Please read:

What else you need. What chance any other framework has and can offer? This is not a vapor where. The inventor has put 100% proof in the web site and challenged the world to prove him wrong. When common sense prevails all the other Ajax frameworks will be marginalized.

If you are a technology super star try to validate the technology and help accelerate and change the world for better.

Cloud Expo Breaking News
Cloud backup and recovery services are critical to safeguarding an organization’s data and ensuring business continuity when technical failures and outages occur. With so many choices, how do you find the right provider for your specific needs? In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Daniel Jacobson, Technology Manager at BUMI, will outline the key factors including backup configurations, proactive monitoring, data restoration, disaster recovery drills, security, compliance and data center resources.

The world of cloud and application development is not just for the hardened developer these days. In their session at 14th Cloud Expo, Phil Jackson, Development Community Advocate for SoftLayer, and Harold Hannon, Sr. Software Architect at SoftLayer, will pull back the curtain of the architecture of a fun demo application purpose-built for the cloud. They will focus on demonstrating how they leveraged compute, storage, messaging, and other cloud elements hosted at SoftLayer to lower the effort and difficulty of putting together a useful application. This will be an active demonstration and review of simple command-line tools and resources, so don’t be afraid if you are not a seasoned developer.
You use an agile process; your goal is to make your organization more agile. What about your data infrastructure? The truth is, today’s databases are anything but agile – they are effectively static repositories that are cumbersome to work with, difficult to change, and cannot keep pace with application demands. Performance suffers as a result, and it takes far longer than it should to deliver on new features and capabilities needed to make your organization competitive. As your application and business needs change, data repositories and structures get outmoded rapidly, resulting in increased work for application developers and slow performance for end users. Further, as data sizes grow into the Big Data realm, this problem is exacerbated and becomes even more difficult to address. A seemingly simple schema change can take hours (or more) to perform, and as requirements evolve the disconnect between existing data structures and actual needs diverge.
Cloud scalability and performance should be at the heart of every successful Internet venture. The infrastructure needs to be resilient, flexible, and fast – it’s best not to get caught thinking about architecture until the middle of an emergency, when it's too late. In his interactive, no-holds-barred session at 14th Cloud Expo, Phil Jackson, Development Community Advocate for SoftLayer, will dive into how to design and build-out the right cloud infrastructure.

Chief Security Officers (CSO), CIOs and IT Directors are all concerned with providing a secure environment from which their business can innovate and customers can safely consume without the fear of Distributed Denial of Service attacks. To be successful in today's hyper-connected world, the enterprise needs to leverage the capabilities of the web and be ready to innovate without fear of DDoS attacks, concerns about application security and other threats. Organizations face great risk from increasingly frequent and sophisticated attempts to render web properties unavailable, and steal intellectual property or personally identifiable information. Layered security best practices extend security beyond the data center, delivering DDoS protection and maintaining site performance in the face of fast-changing threats.
From data center to cloud to the network.

Previously, he was SVP of Global Marketing for Jacada where his branding and positioning expertise helped drive the company from start-up days to a $55 million initial public offering on Nasdaq.
Performance is the intersection of power, agility, control, and choice. If you value performance, and more specifically consistent performance, you need to look beyond simple virtualized compute. Many factors need to be considered to create a truly performant environment. In his General Session at 14th Cloud Expo, Marc Jones, Vice President of Product Innovation for SoftLayer, will explain how to take advantage of a multitude of compute options and platform features to make cloud the cornerstone of your online presence.
Are you interested in accelerating innovation, simplifying deployments, reducing complexity, and lowering development costs? The cloud is changing the face of application development and deployment, with enterprise-grade infrastructure and platform services making it possible for you to build and rapidly scale enterprise applications. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Gene Eun, Sr. Director, Oracle Cloud at Oracle, will discuss the latest solutions and strategies for application developers and enterprise IT organizations to leverage Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) to build and deploy modern business applications in the cloud.
Hybrid cloud refers to the federation of a public and private cloud environment for the purpose of extending the elastic and flexibility of compute, storage and network capabilities, in an on-demand, pay-as-you go basis. The hybrid approach allows a business to take advantage of the scalability and cost-effectiveness that a public cloud computing environment offers without exposing mission-critical applications and data to third-party vulnerabilities. Hybrid cloud environments involve complex management challenges. First, organizations struggle to maintain control over the resources that lie outside of their managed IT scope. They also need greater infrastructure visibility to help reduce maintenance costs and ensure that their company data and resources are properly handled and secured.
As more applications and services move "to the cloud" (public or on-premise), cloud environments are increasingly adopting and building out traditional enterprise features. This in turn is enabling and encouraging cloud adoption from enterprise users. In many ways the definition is blurring as features like continuous operation, geo-distribution or on-demand capacity become the norm. At NuoDB we're involved in both building enterprise software and using enterprise cloud capabilities. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Seth Proctor, CTO of NuoDB, Inc., will cover experiences from building, deploying and using enterprise services and suggest some ways to approach moving enterprise applications into a cloud model.
Understanding the future of Big Data is crucial in the early stages of decision making around Big Data architectures. In the enterprise, what stands out is the need to integrate Hadoop smoothly into your existing data warehouse architecture, while taking advantage of existing skills and investments. In his General Session at 14th Cloud Expo, Marty Gubar, Director of Product Management at Oracle, will present a strategy for enabling integrated data management using both Hadoop and relational technologies. In particular, he'll look at how SQL, long the standard for the data warehouse, is increasingly being used on Hadoop. The real prize, though, is Smart SQL processing, seamlessly integrating the data warehouse and Hadoop into a single, Big Data Management System.
The time has come for humanity’s first interstellar trek to Terranuvem, the cloud planet, and Chief Engineer Cyrus Agarwal has been chosen to ready a ship for the voyage. He must make the right architectural choices to transform the ship for the long journey and be prepared for the unknown. He will be tested and overcome challenges during the mission. Join Cyrus and the crew of the Stratus at Oracle VP Rex Wang’s Day 2 Keynote at 14th Cloud Expo for a unique, sci-fi movie experience while learning key success factors for your own journey to cloud.
