At his upcoming session at AJAXWorld Conference & Expo 2007 East in New York City, Nexaweb chairman and CTO Coach Wei will among other things present a reference open-source stack for AJAX development and demo how visual tooling - fully integrates Dojo, Eclipse WTP, Eclipse ATF and Apache XAP - can be layered on top of that reference stack to enable visual drag and drop development.
"AJAX is powerful," Wei notes, "but it is not easy: there are significant development and maintenance challenges."
His session will present how AJAX can be dramatically simplified by combing community projects together, eventually achieving visual drag-and-drop development.
In addition to being chairman and CTO of Nexaweb Technologies, an Enterprise Web 2.0 software company, Wei is well known as a champion for open source and open standards, the author of the open source word processor AjaxWord, a committer at Apache XAP project and a member of OpenAjax Alliance steering committee.
A frequent speaker at industry events with published work in a variety of technical journals, he obtained his master's degree from MIT, holds six patents and maintains “Direct from Web 2.0” blog at http://www.coachwei.com.
Delegates can hand-pick sessions from six tracks pitched at a a variety of levels from Beginner to Advanced. Rather than staying at the platform-agnostic level, developers and IT professionals will find among the 100+ sessions at AJAXWorld real-world examples in all the main server-side technologies such as PHP, Java, .NET and ColdFusion.
