Primary Architect Behind the Open Source ThinWire AJAX Framework to Speak at AJAXWorld 2007

Joshua Gertzen Will Give a Session on "Effective AJAX for Everyone Including the Enterprise"

Joshua Gertzen, the primary architect behind the open source ThinWire AJAX Framework, will be one of 125 speakers and presenters March 16-19, 2007, at AJAXWorld Conference & Expo 2007 East - the largest AJAX-focused speaker faculty ever assembled in one place at one time. 

Gertzen is a professional computer programmer with over 10 years of experience in software development and architecture. His knowledge and experience range from utilizing differing programming languages, development frameworks, and architectural patterns, to troubleshooting complex architectural issues. Over the last six years, he has played a key role in building the technology infrastructure at Custom Credit Systems (http://www.customcreditsystems.com), a Dallas-based software company. His primary focus over that time has been building Web architectures that utilize DHTML and/or AJAX programming techniques. Additionally, he has been the primary architect behind building, maintaining, and enhancing the open source ThinWire AJAX Framework.

Gertzen's session, "Effective AJAX for Everyone Including the Enterprise," will discuss how, for all the great things that AJAX adds to the Web developer's toolbox, it can also add layers of complexity to a Web development stack that is already bursting at the seams.

Choosing an AJAX framework that aligns its capabilities with your needs is important in achieving both your near-term and long-term goals, Gertzen will show. He will then assist attendees with understanding the four levels of AJAX frameworks that Gartner has identified, so that you can make a better decision betrween them.

His session will outline a range of criteria you should consider in your decision as well as discuss the benefits of a Level 4 general purpose framework.

In March 2007, at New York City's historic Roosevelt Hotel, over 1,000 developers, architects, IT managers, and software professionals of every stripe will be converging in New York City to attend the East coast AJAXWorld Conference & Expo - the most comprehensive meeting on AJAX, Rich Internet Applications, and Web 2.0.

In addition to Joshua Gertzen, delegates will be able to hear first-hand from other creators, innovators, leaders and early adopters of AJAX, and a slew of leading vendors will also be providing sneak peeks of new frameworks, tools, products and applications during the conference, which will have over 100 sessions and presentations given by 125 different speakers from a wide variety of backgrounds, including:

  • The co-founder of the Dojo Toolkit
  • The co-founder of TIBCO General Interface
  • The practice director for Next-Generation Internet at Optaros
  • The chairman, founder and CTO of Nexaweb
  • The lead security researcher for SPI Dynamics
  • The author of AJAX for Web Application Developers
  • The editor-in-chief of AJAXWorldMagazine
  • The chair of Oxford University’s Next-Generation Mobile Applications panel
  • The chief architect for Stream57
  • The co-founder of Emergence Capital Partners
  • The author of the "Micro Persuasion" weblog
  • The co-founder of Serendipity Technologies
  • The director of advanced technologies with IBM Information Integration Solutions
  • The architect at Brane Corporation
  • The coauthors of Real-World AJAX: Secrets of the Masters
  • AJAXWorld Conference & Expo 2007 East will be jump-started with our full one-day “AJAXWorld University Boot Camp,” personally led by Web 2.0 and AJAX guru Dion Hinchcliffe.

    CloudEXPO Stories
    Public clouds dominate IT conversations but the next phase of cloud evolutions are "multi" hybrid cloud environments. The winners in the cloud services industry will be those organizations that understand how to leverage these technologies as complete service solutions for specific customer verticals. In turn, both business and IT actors throughout the enterprise will need to increase their engagement with multi-cloud deployments today while planning a technology strategy that will constitute a significant part of their IT budgets in the very near future. As IoT solutions are growing rapidly, as well as security challenges growing exponentially, without a doubt, the cloud world is about to change for the better. Again.
    GCP Marketplace is based on a multi-cloud and hybrid-first philosophy, focused on giving Google Cloud partners and enterprise customers flexibility without lock-in. It also helps customers innovate by easily adopting new technologies from ISV partners, such as commercial Kubernetes applications, and allows companies to oversee the full lifecycle of a solution, from discovery through management.
    Using serverless computing has a number of obvious benefits over traditional application infrastructure - you pay only for what you use, scale up or down immediately to match supply with demand, and avoid operating any server infrastructure at all. However, implementing maintainable and scalable applications using serverless computing services like AWS Lambda poses a number of challenges. The absence of long-lived, user-managed servers means that states cannot be maintained by the service. Longer function invocation times (referred to as cold starts) become very important to track, because they impact the response time of the service and will impose additional cost. Additionally, the transition to smaller individual components (much like breaking a monolithic application into microservices) results in a simpler deployment model, but makes the system as a whole increasingly complex.

    Today most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes significant work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reduction in cost and increase in speed. Sometimes in order to reduce complexity teams compromise features or change requirements
