High Performance Rich Internet Applications

Julien Lecomte's RIA Session at AJAXWorld, March 18-20, in New York City

In the past few years, AJAX has become very popular because it has enabled developers to build more complex web applications. However, in the rush to push the browser to new limits, we have created a monster.

While the original goal of AJAX was to make web applications more responsive by not reloading the entire document every time something changed on the page, the use of DHTML has sometimes made the overall experience more sluggish because browsers were never really designed as application platforms, occasionally performing poorly while executing seemingly simple tasks.

Furthermore, many "traditional" application developers have recently moved to the browser, applying their existing skills to a radically different platform, sometimes with disastrous consequences.

Building on Yahoo!'s Exceptional Performance Rules, this presentation discusses much of the AJAX community's common wisdom, and describes in great details what it takes to develop high performance AJAX applications. It includes a description of many different techniques, patterns, and best practices that could give your application a little "kick in the rear"...

Speaker Bio: Julien Lecomte is currently an engineer on Yahoo!'s DHTML Evangelist team, a group that provides architectural assistance to Yahoo! developers on the design and implementation of rich interactions in the browser, working alongside the famous Douglas Crockford and Iain Lamb (co-founder of OddPost). Among other things, Julien has worked extensively on Yahoo!'s new Mail application, and is the author of the YUI Browser History Manager and the YUI Compressor. He has also contributed to many different projects including Yahoo! Search and Yahoo! Calendar.

Prior to working at Yahoo, Julien was a senior software engineer at Scalix (now part of Xandros), where he spent a couple of years developing their web client. Prior to joining Scalix, he was a software engineer at easyplanet where he worked on a consumer VoIP application based on the OpenH323 library.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
"MobiDev is a Ukraine-based software development company. We do mobile development, and we're specialists in that. But we do full stack software development for entrepreneurs, for emerging companies, and for enterprise ventures," explained Alan Winters, U.S. Head of Business Development at MobiDev, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...
Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
Recently, REAN Cloud built a digital concierge for a North Carolina hospital that had observed that most patient call button questions were repetitive. In addition, the paper-based process used to measure patient health metrics was laborious, not in real-time and sometimes error-prone. In their session at 21st Cloud Expo, Sean Finnerty, Executive Director, Practice Lead, Health Care & Life Science at REAN Cloud, and Dr. S.P.T. Krishnan, Principal Architect at REAN Cloud, discussed how they built...
When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...

Business professionals no longer wonder if they'll migrate to the cloud; it's now a matter of when. The cloud environment has proved to be a major force in transitioning to an agile business model that enables quick decisions and fast implementation that solidify customer relationships.

Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
