AJAXWorld University Announces AJAX Developer Bootcamp

The AJAX Developer Bootcamp will take placeon Monday, October 2, 2006

MONTVALE, NJ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 05/24/06 -- SYS-CON Events (www.events.sys-con.com) announced today that the first international "AJAXWorld(TM) Conference & Expo" (www.ajaxworldexpo.com), taking place on October 3-4, 2006, at the Santa Clara Convention Center, California, will offer AJAXWorld University - Developer Bootcamp program. The AJAX Developer Bootcamp will take place on Monday, October 2, 2006, one day before the conference opens.

Early bird registration for the AJAX Developer Bootcamp opened today at the AJAXWorld Conference Website: https://www3.sys-con.com/oct06/registernew.cfm

AJAXWorld University's AJAX Developer Bootcamp is an intensive, one-day, hands-on training program that will teach Web developers and designers how to build high-quality AJAX applications from beginning to end.

Available as part of or separately from the AJAXWorld Conference & Expo in Santa Clara, October 3-4, 2006, the AJAX Developer Bootcamp is an in-depth, highly practical crash course that takes students rapidly through the paces of developing AJAX using the latest techniques, libraries/frameworks, and best practices.

Held on October 2, the day before the AJAXWorld Conference & Expo begins, the AJAX Developer Bootcamp is intended to be the premier AJAX instructional program presently available anywhere. The AJAX Developer Bootcamp curriculum is carefully designed to be the most efficient way to "fit all of AJAX in your head" using a structured and well-organized approach to learning about this significant new paradigm shift in Web development.

The AJAX Developer Bootcamp will be taught by AJAXWorld University instructor, Dion Hinchcliffe, renowned AJAX architect, developer, author, and speaker, who is also the founding editor and editor-in-chief of AJAXWorld Magazine and editor of SYS-CON Book's upcoming bestseller, "Real-World AJAX: Secrets of the Masters."

Attendees of the AJAX Developer Bootcamp will gain a deep understanding of the underlying principles of AJAX including DHTML, JavaScript, XMLHttpRequest, how to build AJAX-friendly Web services including JSON, AJAX application structure, and useful tips for debugging, troubleshooting, and tuning AJAX applications. Knowledge of and ability to work with HTML and CSS are a bootcamp prerequisite, as well as basic JavaScript skills.

The AJAX method of designing Web-based software has taken the industry by storm over the last year. Internet companies like Google have shown what is possible (Gmail and Google Maps), and the future of Web development now seems closely intertwined with mastery of the AJAX technique, which results in online software that is as rich and expressive as desktop software.

AJAXWorld University Certification:
Attendees successfully completing the bootcamp will get a certificate of completion from AJAXWorld University.

Who Should Attend:
Attendees with prior limited knowledge of AJAX are encouraged to attend AJAX Developer Bootcamp if they will be involved in the design or building of AJAX software.

AJAXWorld Conference & Expo:
The world-beating conference program will provide developers, IT managers, and corporate decision makers with comprehensive information and insight into the biggest paradigm shift in Website design, development, and deployment since the invention of the World Wide Web a decade ago.

The next-generation user-centric Web is hurtling toward us and it is a rich-media future in which AJAX, the most talked about of all the Rich Internet technologies, is positioned firmly at center stage.

Burton Group defines "Rich" Internet Applications as those that offer functionality beyond standard HTML frames and hyperlinks, the most famous examples of such functionality on the Web to date being the AJAX-based Google Maps and Gmail.

AJAXWorld Conference & Expo 2006 recognizes that, while on the one hand Rich Internet Applications (RIAs) as a category is wider and broader than just AJAX, on the other it is indisputably AJAX that has acted as the tipping point.

"Over the two information-packed days, delegates will receive four days' worth of education, as speaker after speaker explores AJAX and RIAs in the greater context of the overall Web 2.0 spectrum," said Jeremy Geelan, conference chair and group publisher of SYS-CON Media. "Delegates will also receive all conference sessions on SYS-CON.TV's 'very popular' Webcast DVDs, thus, not missing a single session of this ground-breaking event of the year."

AJAXWorld will feature a faculty of the world's most distinguished speakers, including Jesse James Garrett, the father of the term "AJAX" who will be delivering the opening keynote. The speakers will present more than 96 sessions, keynotes, and televised power panel discussions, in six simultaneous tracks for two days.

The call for papers for "AJAXWorld" will remain open through June 30, 2006, at www.ajaxworldexpo.com.

Sponsorship and Exhibit Opportunities:
AJAXWorld will be sponsored by eight leading AJAX and Rich Internet technology vendors. The conference will offer exhibit opportunities to other vendors in addition to the eight main event sponsors, including five charter sponsors: Adobe (www.adobe.com), Backbase (www.backbase.com), ComponentArt (www.componentart.com), Laszlo Systems (www.laszlosystems.com) and Nexaweb (www.nexaweb.com).

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.

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. We track events like clicks, opens and deliveries to help improve deliverability for our customers – adding up to over 50 billion useful events every month. While SendGrid data covers only abo...
