Creating Web Applications That Look and Feel Like Desktop GUIs

Using TIBCO GI and open source AJAX libraries

Luke Birdeau will present a session entitled "Creating Web applications that look and feel like desktop GUIs using TIBCO GI and Open Source AJAX libraries" at the AJAXWorld Conference & Expo which will take place October 2-4, 2006, at the Santa Clara Convention Center, in Santa Clara, California.

Building AJAX applications that rival desktop GUIs is no trivial task. In contrast to moderate DHTML enhancements to HTML pages, desktop-like GUIs such as Yahoo! latest Mail Beta, introduce new requirements of memory management, data and component caching, and DHTML rendering optimization. Luke Birdeau, creator of TIBCO General Interface, has been tackling that challenge since 2001 and will show you how you too can quickly and easily do the same using open source AJAX frameworks and components.

Luke Birdeau is the creator and lead software engineer for TIBCO General Interface (“GI”), the acclaimed AJAX toolkit for building Web applications that look and feel like desktop GUIs. Luke pioneered AJAX-style architectures, first releasing TIBCO GI in 2001. Several generations of releases and proven performance in global companies have led to the recognition that Luke’s work is one of the most mature AJAX Rich Internet Application toolkits available.
