Bray's predictions came in the feature "Where's AJAX, SOA and Virtualization Headed in 2008?" - which also included predictions from: Joshua Allen, Microsoft; Dr Adam Kolawa, Parasoft; Eric Newcomer, IONA Technologies; Bill Roth, BEA Systems; Brad Abrams, Microsoft; Kevin Hoffman, iPhone Developer's Journal; Ian Thain, Sybase; Yakov Fain, Farata Systems.

An AJAXWorld Look at The Rise and Rise of Enterprise AJAX and RIAs

It has come a long, long way since February 2005 when Jesse James Garrett coined the now universally used term for it: the rise and rise of 'AJAX' has been meticulously reflected in the pages of SYS-CON Media's magazines and web sites. We take an end-of-year look at its first 22 months. February 2005 Garrett, President and a founder of Adaptive Path, writes his seminal essay offering a new approach to Web applications, goes away on vacation, and comes back a week later to a mountain of e-mail from around the world asking for more details about this new way of thinking about the arc...

Rich Internet Applications with OpenAjax Hub 1.1 & SMash Secure Mashups

In this session Jon and Sumeer will describe current work at OpenAjax Alliance on OpenAjax Hub 1.1 and secure mashups. Mashups have the potential for revolutionizing the way Web applications are developed, but there are security risks. In order to unleash the industry, OpenAjax Alliance is adding secure mashup features to its OpenAjax Hub 1.1 release. This new release will include a set of techniques called "SMash" that were originally developed by IBM Research and allows for secure mashups that run in today's browsers. The session will introduce mashups, OpenAjax Hub, and SMash,... (more)

Netflix UI Guru To Present on Crafting Rich Web Interfaces

Over the last 24 years Bill Scott has been involved in the study of nuanced design in crafting rich interfaces, so who better at the 6th International AJAXWorld RIA Conference & Expo to address the topic "Crafting Rich Web Interfaces" than the UI and UX guru who is currently Director of User Interface Engineering at Netflix. In every field of design one of the first things students do is learn from the work of others. They study and break down real-world examples in order to understand the underlying principles and patterns that make for successful design. Then they learn to app... (more)
