Embracing New Platforms: Building RIAs Beyond AJAX

Curl's Bert Halstead's Upcoming AJAXWorld Conference Session

There is now a spectrum of Rich Internet Application (RIA) technologies - including Adobe Flex, Adobe AIR, Microsoft Silverlight, and Curl - that go beyond the traditional functionality that AJAX provides. These platforms provide distinct benefits for moving complex desktop and client-server applications to the Web.

An independent study by Sonata Software compared the performance and ease of development of applications using Curl, AJAX, and Flex, highlighting strengths and weaknesses of each platform This session will look at the application characteristics that developers should consider before choosing a platform, as well as provide specific examples of the interactivity and performance that these platforms offer.

Speaker Bio: Bert Halstead is the chief architect of Curl, Inc., and a founding member of the Curl technical team. Previously, he was a research staff member at Digital Equipment Corporation. He received his Ph.D. degree from MIT and spent ten years teaching computer science there.

However, energy consumption to mine cryptocurrency is one of the biggest issues facing this industry. Burning huge amounts of electricity isn't incidental to cryptocurrency, it's basically embedded in the core of "mini...
Every organization is facing their own Digital Transformation as they attempt to stay ahead of the competition, or worse, just keep up. Each new opportunity, whether embracing machine learning, IoT, or a cloud migration, seems to bring new development, deployment, and management models. The results are more diverse and federated computing models than any time in our history.

Where many organizations get into trouble, however, is that they try to have a broad and deep knowledge in each of these areas. This is a huge blow to an organization's productivity. By automating or outsourcing some of these pieces, such as databases, infrastructure, and networks, your team can instead focus on development, testing, and deployment. Further, organizations that focus their attention on these areas can eventually move to a test-driven development structure that condenses several l...
