AJAX Rock Stars Gather in New York City To Teach "Real-World AJAX"

Jesse James Garrett, David H. Hansson, Scott Dietzen, Bill Scott and 7 Other AJAX "Rock Stars" Feature in One-Day NYC Event

By now there isn't a software developer on earth who isn't aware of the collection of programming technologies known as AJAX. But you can't bank awareness. Which is why developers from all over the world are converging today from 07:00AM in New York City's Marriott Marquis Hotel in Times Square  to live and breathe AJAX at the inaugural "Real-World AJAX" Seminar. The top-line speakers are: Jesse James Garrett, David Heinemeier Hansson, Scott Dietzen, Ross Dargahi, Bill Scott, Christophe Coenraets, Rob Gonda, Dave Crane, Jouk Pleiter, Kevin Hakman, Sahil Malik, and Dion Hinchcliffe.

SYS-CON's "Real-World AJAX" seminar series aims to answer several questions: how in concrete terms can developers take advantage in their own projects of this newly popular way of delivering online content to users without reloading an entire page? How soon can developers be monetizing AJAX?

Led by The Father of the term "AJAX" himself, the charismatic Jesse James Garrett of Adaptive Path, the "Real-World AJAX" Seminar today has one overriding organizing principle: its aim is to make sure that delegates fortunate enough to secure themselves a place 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.

As if the participation in this content-rich day of the man who first coined "AJAX" weren't enough, "Real-World AJAX" also offers insights from:

  • David Heinemeier Hansson, The Creator of Rails
  • Scott Dietzen, President & CTO of Zimbra, A Father of J2EE
  • Bill Scott, AJAX Evangelist of Yahoo!
  • Christophe Coenraets, AJAX-Flex Integration Guru, Adobe
  • Jouk Pleiter, Co-Founder & CEO, Backbase
  • Kevin Hakman, Co-Founder General Interface, TIBCO Software
  • Rob Gonda, Editor-in-Chief of AJAX Developer's Journal
  • Sahil Malik, telerik Tech Evangelist, Bestselling Book Author
  • Ross Dargahi, Co-Founder and VP of Engineering, Zimbra
  • Dave Crane, Bestselling AJAX book author on "AJAX Power Panel"
  • Dion Hinchcliffe, Well-known Web 2.0 Blogger on "AJAX Power Panel"

    These sessions look hot; but the fog on Long Island is slowing me down and I may miss the first 30 mins, is anyone there gonna blog it for the rest of us?

    Hate to sound like a luddite but...I've been viewing the web for 10 years, all I want from a website is information and I want it fast.

    Web documents have no place being applications and javascript and flash have no place in documents. Why do people not understand this?

    So all AJAX roads lead to NYC? Sweet!

    Laszlo just reinforced its commitment to the Open Ajax Community established last month by IBM, Oracle, &co - will there be any sessions on Open Ajax in particular?

    I've previously implemented AJAX-like functionality using Microsoft's Remote Scripting roughly 5 years ago (around 2000-2001) and not too many programmers had a clue on what it was and how it worked; actually - at the risk of getting you Java and LAMP coders pissed off - Microsoft was also central to the birth of the XMLHttpRequest object ... but I digress...

    With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
    The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
    When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
    Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
