Patrick Grady to Keynote at AJAXWorld

AJAX, SOA, Web Services

AJAX, SOA, Web Services. These powerful new technologies provide the foundation for a new generation of applications, converging unprecedented user centricity, connectivity to functionality and content, and automation – ultimately putting the web to work on behalf of the individual. Rearden Commerce has pioneered the use of these technologies to build both a marketplace for services and an online personal assistant. Patrick will discuss real world approaches for delivering both the rich user experience possible with AJAX and the powerful backend connections to content, commerce and service delivery possible with a web services platform.
