Appcelerator Revolutionizes UI Prototyping

Bye bye static HTML wireframes: how to build a user interface prototype fast without a datamodel

What if you could build the user interface prototype in a matter of days or weeks without a single line of server-side code or even a datamodel? What if the business owner could not only play with this prototype, but also provide context specific feedback seamlessly while exploring the prototype? Finally, what if the prototype wasn't a prototype at all, but was the actual user-interface of the final product (zero throwaway code)... even if you haven't decided which server-side technology you want to use (Java, .Net, Ruby, PHP, Python, Perl)?

In this session from AJAXWorld Conference and Expo 2008 West, Matthew Quinlan discussed how Static HTML wireframes are no longer sufficient to prototype today's RIAs built on syndicated content, widgets, DOM manipulation, AJAX calls, and often a substantial amount of custom JavaScript.
