The Next-Generation Web: Social Networks and New Media Expert To Speak at AJAXWorld 2007 East

Hooman Radfar will share his vision in New York City, 19-21 March, 2007

Social networks and new media expert Hooman Radfar (pictured), whose blog at www.widgify.com serves as a conduit for his outreach to widget developers worldwide, will be giving a session at AJAXWorld Conference & Expo (East) in New York City, 19-21 March, 2007. The session will cover next-generation information architecture, including his vision of how Web destinations will empower users with tools to aggregate content.

His session will form part of a 2-day track devoted to Web 2.0 issues and techniques delivered at AJAXWorld 2007 East by such Next-Generation Internet luminaries as Steve Rubel, Stowe Boyd, Yuval Tarsi, Dean Allemang, Dion Hinchcliffe, Dustin Whittle, Coach Wei, Troy Angrignon, and Alex Barnett.

Radfar graduated magna cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania with degrees in Economics and Computer Science and holds an M.S. from Carnegie Mellon University, where his thesis was titled "An Agent-Based, Social Networking Approach to Modeling the Growth of Regional Economies."

He is founder of Clearspring Technologies which under his leadership grew from concept to company. His session, entitled "Next Generation Information Architecture - The Aggregator," will discuss such issues as:

  • Now that SOA and the Aggregator Model are emerging, does the current browser make sense?
  • While the page model worked in old paradigm (interactive publication), the new paradigm is the web as platform (with a need to aggregate services)
  • If a new common Information Architecture emerges, should new browser be optimized?

Radfar blogs at www.widgify.com.

At AJAXWorld Conference & Expo 2007 East, delegates will hear and learn not only the history, process, and inspiration behind AJAX, they will also be helped to design actual AJAX applications using JavaScript, Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), the Document Object Model (DOM) and XMLHttpRequest Object.

Delegates can hand-pick sessions from six tracks pitched at a a variety of levels from Beginner to Advanced. Rather than staying at the platform-agnostic level, developers and IT professionals will find among the 100+ sessions at AJAXWorld real-world examples in all the main server-side technologies such as PHP, Java, .NET and ColdFusion.

The first International AJAXWorld (a registered trademark of SYS-CON Media) Conference & Expo generated record press coverage for any i-technology event in the past 6 years. A quick search on Google News brought 410 stories filed under the keyword search "AJAXWorld."

Typical of the coverage was the story from ADT Magazine, whose John K. Waters wrote, in a report titled "Nexaweb and JackBe Take Web 2 to the Enterprise":

"Last week's AJAXWorld Conference and Expo ... had the feel of an early JavaOne - which is to say, the place was positively quivering with possibility."

Even though it’s now Microservices Journal, long-time fans of SOA World Magazine can take comfort in the fact that the URL – soa.sys-con.com – remains unchanged. And that’s no mistake, as microservices are really nothing more than a new and improved take on the Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) best practices we struggled to hammer out over the last decade. Skeptics, however, might say that this change is nothing more than an exercise in buzzword-hopping. SOA is passé, and now that people are ...
