Kurt Cagle (pictured) of Cagle Communications, a software development firm in Kirkland, WA, blogged prolifically during AJAXWorld Conference & Expo 2006 in Santa Clara, CA, which wound up yesterday after 3 intense days at the Santa Clara Convention Center.
Cagle, who also spoke at the event, is very well known as a writer about XML, which he once famously described as "this odd, ugly little angle-bracket syntax of ours has quietly managed to wend its way into nearly every aspect of computer technology."
Here's a selection from some of the things he had to say about AJAXWorld 2006:
On Christophe Coenraets, Adobe:
"The impressive app was loading 20,000 rows of mySQL data into a component, then sorts it under half a second. Very nice. He then proceeds to snapshot the dataset, running in its own standalone component - a stand-alone flash/flex app called Apollo, more info coming.. Not surprising, though welcome, but I have to wonder if this is the shot across the brow to Microsoft saying that Adobe’s getting into the app development space."
On a product demo by OpenLaszlo:
"My jaw has dropped here. There is some incredible work done here, and I can see where this is giving other companies some real heartburn. I’m already rethinking some applications I’ve been working on in order to work against the environment. Check these guys out and help contribute to this fantastic OSS project!"
On a Nexaweb presentation re Enterprise Web 2.0:
"Even in Japan, scheduling and calendaring seems to be the killer app for AJAX. Some very interesting work in component systems from Toshiba, showing how AJAX based systems there are developing. Very utilitarian (and all in Japanese of course, which has the effect of highlighting the visual interfaces)."
On David Temkin's session, "AJAX and the Web's Copernican Revolution":
"David is an engaging speaker, has obviously been through the trenches on this. I find I agree with him just about on everything -- we are seeing the rise of client-centric programming and it will change the world!"
