Adobe's senior technical evangelist Christophe Coenraets (pictured here speaking at SYS-CON's "Real-World Flex" One-Day Seminar in 2006), will be speaking at AJAXWorld Conference & Expo 2007 East, being held 19-21 March at The Roosevelt Hotel in New York City. He joins a stellar line-up of luminaries behind the Next-Generation Internet.
According to Coenraets, we're seeing today the first steps of the industry's journey down a path towards "high definition" user interfaces. "Real time data, in-context collaboration, vector graphics-powered expressiveness, rich media integration, and offline capabilities will soon become standard attributes of any client application," says Coenraets.

"For the last two years," continues Coenraets, "the industry has shifted its attention back to the client and the user interface. Noticeable progress has already been made, putting pressure on IT organizations to deliver better user experiences."
But the improvements that we are witnessing today are merely incremental, Coenraets will contend at his session to be given at the upcoming AJAXWorld Conference & Expo 2007 East in New York City, 19-21 March at The Roosevelt Hotel.
Coenraets will introduce AJAXWorld delegates to Flex, Adobe's complete solution for building this new breed of applications that combine the richness of desktop applications with the reach of web applications.
"Combined with Apollo (the code name for Adobe's new cross-platform client), Flex applications can run inside or outside the browser," Coenraets adds.
His session will provide an in-depth overview of the Flex programming model and focus on the integration with existing back-end infrastructure.

Are there any applications as complex as Laszlo Mail implemented in Flex?

Lowering the entry barrier is always a good thing. When C compilers got good enough that applications could be written with only a minimum of assembly, people groaned about the same thing. There's a lot of hype right now, and a lot of interest, things will settle down.
All of these frameworks and libraries and doohickies come about for a simple reason: web application programming is too complicated. Given the relatively simple functionality being designed, coding an (even non-AJAX) webapp is a pain in the ass involving a mostly stateless system running 4 or 5 languages. The techniques for getting around this problem are relatively cookie cutter, and we really should no more be coding them by hand than we should be rolling our own printf every time we write a terminal utility.
There's more creativity and action in interactive online software than ever before, and it's nothing but a good thing.
