Coach Wei Explains Enterprise AJAX Adoption Without Being a Rocket Scientist

Coach Wei's RIA Session at AJAXWorld, March 18-20, in New York City

Consumer applications such as Google Maps have opened the eyes of business users to a new Web experience, but the technology behind Google Maps -- AJAX -- poses significant development and maintenance challenges. Although powerful in the hands of rocket scientists, AJAX has been beyond the grip of average enterprise developers. This session presents techniques and approaches that significantly simplify AJAX development and maintenance. Starting by introducing the declarative and programmatic programming models and different levels of AJAX adoption, the session addresses how to:
  • Develop AJAX applications the right way
  • Reduce the skill set requirements
  • Make AJAX scale to large, distributed team-based development projects,
  • Integrate multiple community projects to achieve higher productivity.

The session presents code and application examples.
