RIA Themes & Topics at AJAXWorld 2008 East: Complete Round-Up

Overall themes & topics being presented by leading RIA practitioners & front-end engineering's thought leaders

A round-up of the overall themes and topics being presented at AJAXWorld 2008 East at The Roosevelt Hotel in midtown Manhattan, March 18-20, 2008 - including Enterprise Mashups, Rich Internet Applications, Security, Enterprise AJAX, Silverlight, GWT, Reverse AJAX/'AJAX Push', AIR/Flash/Flex, JavaFX, ASP.NET AJAX, Seam, JSF, iPhone, Social Applications, YUI, jMaki, Appcelerator, Curl and more...

The business value of RIAs is very clear: aesthetics do matter and users would like a pleasant experience. Good RIAs can provide your customers with user experiences that leave your competition in the dust. While most enterprise applications are based on old client/server technology with high cost of ownership and lack of flexibility, switching to the Web as a platform for mission-critical applications is very appealing – as it lowers the TCO significantly.

With a lineup of exceptional tech- and industry-savvy speakers, AJAXWorld Conference & Expo 2008 East in March offers dozens of high-quality use cases of the fast-emerging RIA alternatives such as AIR/Flash/Flex, Silverlight, JavaFX, Appcelerator and Curl among others.

Here is a round-up of the overall themes and topics being presented at the Conference, which is being held at The Roosevelt Hotel in midtown Manhattan, March 18-20, 2008. Enjoy! Last Chance to Register for AJAXWorld 2008 East and Save $100 !
