RIA Usability & User Experience Expert Mike Padillo To Speak at AJAX World

Padillo is an ardent advocate of high-fidelity prototyping during requirements development

At AJAXWorld Conference & Expo 2008 East in New York City later this month Mike Padillo will be helping attendees understand what AJAX affords and which UX (User eXperience) characteristics lend themselves to an AJAX implementation. Currently a UX manager at Vanguard, Padillo has led front-end development efforts for such companies as Fleet Credit Cards, Mellon Private Asset Management, The Bank of New York, Radian Guaranty and Bessemer Trust. Macromedia (now Adobe) has featured his usability designs.

"AJAX is seemingly everywhere," says Padillo, "But is everything a nail to be pounded with the AJAX hammer?"

"Some of the fundamental technologies that AJAX is based on - including HTML, CSS and JavaScript - can offer simpler, more elegant solutions that are better suited to certain user experiences," he continues.

By understanding what AJAX affords and which user experience characteristics lend themselves to an AJAX implementation, Padillo's session will help designers and developers to more suitably use AJAX to deliver more engaging user experiences.

"The applicability of rich interactivity is determined by the continuity of page context as it relates to the user's workflow," notes Padillo, who is an ardent advocate of high-fidelity prototyping during requirements development.

In his spare time, he designed and developed Protonotes, a free AJAX Web service that allows project team members to discuss system functionality, design and requirements directly on prototypes with "sticky notes."

Padillo's session is just of the 90+ sessions, presentations, discussion panels, and keynotes that together make up the 3-day conference program of this month's 5th International AJAXWorld.

The March event features six content-rich tracks:

  • Enterprise RIAs
  • Rich-Web Tools & Case Studies
  • Web 2.0 & Social Applications
  • Enterprise Web 2.0 & Mashups
  • iPhone Developer Summit
  • Aspects of RIA Software

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, will discuss how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
