High Performance Rich Internet Applications

Julien Lecomte's RIA Session at AJAXWorld, March 18-20, in New York City

In the past few years, AJAX has become very popular because it has enabled developers to build more complex web applications. However, in the rush to push the browser to new limits, we have created a monster.

While the original goal of AJAX was to make web applications more responsive by not reloading the entire document every time something changed on the page, the use of DHTML has sometimes made the overall experience more sluggish because browsers were never really designed as application platforms, occasionally performing poorly while executing seemingly simple tasks.

Furthermore, many "traditional" application developers have recently moved to the browser, applying their existing skills to a radically different platform, sometimes with disastrous consequences.

Building on Yahoo!'s Exceptional Performance Rules, this presentation discusses much of the AJAX community's common wisdom, and describes in great details what it takes to develop high performance AJAX applications. It includes a description of many different techniques, patterns, and best practices that could give your application a little "kick in the rear"...

Speaker Bio: Julien Lecomte is currently an engineer on Yahoo!'s DHTML Evangelist team, a group that provides architectural assistance to Yahoo! developers on the design and implementation of rich interactions in the browser, working alongside the famous Douglas Crockford and Iain Lamb (co-founder of OddPost). Among other things, Julien has worked extensively on Yahoo!'s new Mail application, and is the author of the YUI Browser History Manager and the YUI Compressor. He has also contributed to many different projects including Yahoo! Search and Yahoo! Calendar.

Prior to working at Yahoo, Julien was a senior software engineer at Scalix (now part of Xandros), where he spent a couple of years developing their web client. Prior to joining Scalix, he was a software engineer at easyplanet where he worked on a consumer VoIP application based on the OpenH323 library.

If a machine can invent, does this mean the end of the patent system as we know it? The patent system, both in the US and Europe, allows companies to protect their inventions and helps foster innovation. However, Artificial Intelligence (AI) could be set to disrupt the patent system as we know it. This talk will examine how AI may change the patent landscape in the years to come. Furthermore, ways in which companies can best protect their AI related inventions will be examined from both a US and European perspective.
The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next-gen applications and how to address the challenges of building applications that harness all data types and sources.

All zSystem customers have a significant new business opportunity to extend their reach to new customers and markets with new applications and services, and to improve the experience of existing customers. This can be achieved by exposing existing z assets (which have been developed over time) as APIs for accessing Systems of Record, while leveraging mobile and cloud capabilities with new Systems of Engagement applications. In this session, we will explore business drivers with new Node.js apps for delivering enhanced customer experience (with mobile and cloud adoption), how to accelerate development and management of SoE app APIs with API management.
