AJAXWorld 2007 East Keynote: Microsoft's Brad Abrams on AJAX in the Balance

"What Does AJAX Bring to the Client-Server Balance?"

Microsoft's Brad Abrams (pictured), Group Program Manager of the .NET Framework, keynoted Day Three of AJAXWorld Conference & Expo 2007 East in New York City this morning. In his address, titled "AJAX in the Balance," Abrams spoke of cross-platform balance, and open source versus proprietary solutions. Are we in or out of balance with both client-centric and server-centric computing, he asked.

Abrams came out of the gate fast, demoing how ASP.NET AJAX allows a developer to AJAX-enable a Website without writing JavaScript, by using the tag-based approach that ASP.NET AJAX makes very easy to execute, including JSON calls back to the server.

Abrams brought along his Mac, to demonstrate that it all ran on a Mac just as easily - a nice touch for a Microsoft speaker.

He then demoed how ASP.NET AJAX also jives with Dojo.
