"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 Computing is evolving into a Big Three of Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud, and Microsoft Azure. Cloud 360: Multi-Cloud Bootcamp, being held Nov 4–5, 2014, in conjunction with 15th Cloud Expo in Santa Clara, CA, delivers a real-world demonstration of how to deploy and configure a scalable and available web application on all three platforms. The Cloud 360 Bootcamp, led by Janakiram MSV, an analyst with Gigaom Research, is the first bootcamp that introduces the core concepts of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) based on the workings of the Big Three platforms – Amazon EC2, Google Compute Engine, and Azure VMs. Bootcamp attendees will get to see the big picture and also receive the knowledge needed to make the best cloud decisions for their business applications and entire enterprise IT organization.
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
The Internet of Things is a natural complement to the cloud and related technologies such as Big Data, analytics, and mobility. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Joe Weinman will lay out four generic strategies – digital disciplines – to exploit emerging digital technologies for strategic advantage.

There are 182 billion emails sent every day, generating a lot of data about how recipients and ISPs respond. Many marketers take a more-is-better approach to stats, preferring to have the ability to slice and dice their email lists based numerous arbitrary stats. However, fundamentally what really matters is whether or not sending an email to a particular recipient will generate value. Data Scientists can design high-level insights such as engagement prediction models and content clusters that allow marketers to cut through the noise and design their campaigns around strong, predictive signals, rather than arbitrary statistics. SendGrid sends up to half a billion emails a day for customers such as Pinterest and GitHub. All this email adds up to more text than produced in the entire twitterverse.

Almost everyone sees the potential of Internet of Things but how can businesses truly unlock that potential. The key will be in the ability to discover business insight in the midst of an ocean of Big Data generated from billions of embedded devices via Systems of Discover. Businesses will also need to ensure that they can sustain that insight by leveraging the cloud for global reach, scale and elasticity. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Mac Devine, Distinguished Engineer at IBM, will discuss bringing these three elements together via Systems of Discover.

In his session at DevOps Summit, Bernard Golden, Vice President of Strategy at ActiveState, will discuss how to achieve the agility and speed of end-to-end automation without requiring an organization stocked with Supermen and Superwomen.
