AJAX CEO Power Panel on SYS-CON.TV at AJAXWorld

Building modern SOAs and Web 2.0 sites requires a design style that goes with the 'grain' of the Web

AJAXWorld will feature a faculty of more than 100 distinguished speakers, presenting more than 96 sessions, keynotes, and power panel discussions, in six simultaneous tracks for three days, including AHAX Bootcamp, which will take place on Monday, October 2, 2006.

The program will also cover in detail the other IDEs available for AJAX that are not yet mainstream, like JavaScript Synthesis Technology (JST), IntelliJ IDEA 5.0, Visual GUI Builder, Backbase, and the open source Ruby on Rails framework.

“Over the two information-packed days, delegates will receive four days’ worth of education, as speaker after speaker explores AJAX and RIAs in the greater context of the overall Web 2.0 spectrum,” said Jeremy Geelan, conference chair and group publisher of SYS-CON Media. “Delegates will also receive all conference sessions in SYS-CON.TV’s now ‘most popular’ Webcast DVDs, thus, not missing a single session of this ground-breaking event of the year.”

"Redefining RIAs: Does AJAX Push the Browser Too Far?"
Moderator: Jeremy Geelan

The lightweight AJAX programming model has taken the PC browser market by storm. This panel will look at the totality of its impact and at the impact of Rich Internet Applications as a whole.

- AJAX isn't really anything new - yesterday's technology rediscovered - so why all the hype?
- Will AJAX technologies have as much impact on mobile devices as they're having on the desktop?
- How about AJAX on gaming consoles like the Nintendo Wii or Sony's PS3?
- If a database like Apache Derby could be embedded into a browser, would AJAX be able to run offline?
- Should we all forget about AJAX and concentrate instead on "Web 2.0"?

"Web-Oriented Architecture: SOA + The Web + REST"
Moderator: Dion Hinchcliffe

Building modern SOAs and Web 2.0 sites requires a design style that goes with the "grain" of the Web. REST, a natural extension of HTTP created by the co-inventor of HTTP, is getting a lot of attention these days because it's easy to work with, aligns well with the Web, and is very high performance. Used architecturally, REST is called "Web-Oriented Architecture" or WOA. But whither SOAP, the canonical Web services protocol up to now? 

This panel will discuss that and more, including:

- REST has been with us for a while, why is it taking off now?
- What's going to happen to SOAP-based SOAs?
- What are IBM, Microsoft, and BEA doing about REST support in their products?
- REST seems to make AJAX programming much easier than SOAP. Why?

AJAXWorld 2006 CEO Power Panel
Moderator: Dion Hinchcliffe

More and more companies are using so-called "Web 2.0" tools to build their own mashups. They are increasingly looking at other ways to change how they communicate with customers. This special AJAXWorld 2006 CEO Power Panel will discuss the business impact of the new breed of applications that integrate content from many sources in the enterprise and Web community in as little as five minutes. Contributory factors considered will be:

  • open APIs - such those now available from eBay, Google, Amazon and Yahoo!
  • RSS, AJAX, Comet, blogs, Wikis, Social Interactive software and Web components

"The FrameworkWars: Lightweight vs Heavyweight"
Moderator: Jeremy Geelan

There are a number of different frameworks that will do much of the heavy lifting for AJAX developers, from the well-known such as Dojo and ThinWire to the perhaps less well-known Taconite framework.

- Which is best suited to doing what job - and why?

This fundamental question will be the central concern of this "Power Panel."
