How to Code the UI: Lessons from ebookers and Orbitz

Orbitz Worldwides's Mark Meeker to Present at SYS-CON's AJAXWorld RIA Conference & Expo, Oct. 20-22, in San Jose, CA

When Orbitz released a new generation of its global technology platform to power ebookers.com there were some lofty goals for the UI. They wanted to build a presentation tier (HTML, CSS, JavaScript) that would meet the goals of internationalization, accessibility, have rich AJAX interactions, and be faster and easier to develop in. This session will explore the key challenges in achieving these goals, including what worked, what didn't, and what's next.
