Laszlo and Dojo Announce Strategic AJAX Partnership

Dojo Toolkit to be Licensed, Laszlo Code to be Contributed

Under a new agreement between Laszlo Systems and the Dojo Foundation, the Dojo Toolkit will be licensed for use in Laszlo's open source projects and Laszlo, in turn, will contribute libraries to the Dojo Foundation, thereby furthering the advancement of the growing Ajax and open source communities at large.

Laszlo recently revealed that by the end of this year developers using OpenLaszlo will have the option to deploy their applications in Dynamic HTML (DHTML), in addition to the Flash runtime option that is currently available. Now by licensing the Dojo Toolkit and engaging the Foundation's vast community of contributors, OpenLaszlo's DHTML development will significantly benefit from the most robust, comprehensive library of cross-browser solutions and resources existing today. Laszlo will likewise make substantial contributions to the Dojo Foundation, enriching the overall functionality of the Toolkit and benefiting the Ajax development community in the process.

"We are pleased that Laszlo is so actively supporting non-proprietary development solutions and establishing their commitment to the future of Ajax, as evidenced by today's announcement," said Alex Russell (pictured above), co-founder of the Dojo Toolkit. "We're looking forward to working together on Laszlo's DHTML runtime now, and also towards a more integrated Ajax solution for Web application developers in the future."

"This is what open source is all about - combining communities and resources in order to enable a better solution and foster lasting change," said David Temkin (pictured left), founder and CTO at Laszlo. "We're excited to add Dojo to our growing list of supporters and couldn't ask for a better partner as we continue to broaden OpenLaszlo's unified runtimes and development capabilities."

Both Laszlo and Dojo are founding members of the Open Ajax technology collaboration, which they established along with industry titans IBM, Oracle, BEA, RedHat, Yahoo!, Google and others earlier this year.

"We worked across the industry to create Open Ajax in order to bring together disparate Ajax development environments, and to create a central body that would eventually determine the evolution of Ajax development standards and best practices," said David Boloker, chief technology officer of Emerging Internet Technologies, IBM Software Group. "Today's announcement embodies the basis of Open Ajax's principles and is a great win for the industry as a whole."

CloudEXPO Stories
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.
