2008: Decision Year for RIAs - October 20-22, 2008 San Jose


Web 2.0: The State of Confusion?
At AJAXWorld, Coach Wei will examine the confusion and debunk the myth around Web 2.0

Increasingly, industry pundents, seasoned developers, and bloggers alike are labeling “Web 2.0” as nothing but jargon and a new spin on old technologies. In this session, Coach Wei will examine the state of confusion around “Web 2.0,” debunk the myth that Web 2.0 doesn’t involve new technologies, and finally answer the question: How is Web 2.0 meaningful to the enterprise? Believe it or not - Web 2.0 will fundamentally impact core enterprise IT operations in a way that can only be matched by the shift from mainframe computing to client/server computing!

Speaker Bio: Coach combines in-depth IT industry expertise with extensive education and research experience at MIT to drive technology innovation and business direction for Nexaweb. He founded Nexaweb in 2000 and served as CEO until summer 2003. Before founding Nexaweb, Coach architected and designed enterprise software for managing storage networks at EMC Corporation.

Widget platforms are a natural fit for sites such as eBay, because by using Web services you can monitor the status of ever-changing data. However, there are unique challenges you will need to overcome in order to use Web services in your widget, such as security constraints, authentication, data overload, and more. JSON, XSLT, proxy servers, Flash bridging, and other technologies can help, but each approach has both advantages and drawbacks. This talk discusses how to use Web services within widget platforms, like live.com, and dives into some real-world examples of widgets that use third-party Web services.
