Building Email Apps

TripIt's Co-Founder & VP of Engineering, Andy Denmark, to Present at SYS-CON's AJAXWorld RIA Conference & Expo

The first email message was sent over 40 years ago and email is the dominant form of electronic communication today, containing a unique data repository with rich context about people’s lives. Given the mass acceptance and potential value of email, it’s worth considering what apps can be built on top of this well-tested, scalable and ubiquitous infrastructure.

This session delves into the lessons learned from building TripIt, a travel organizer and social network that enables people to forward their travel confirmation emails to automatically create rich sharable travel itineraries. We’ll cover the history of email apps and best practices for designing and developing email apps. Understand how to get your email delivered, the complexities of interpreting email from a wide assortment of mail clients, as well as spam, security and privacy.
