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


Best User Experience and How to Build Application UI with AJAX
Peter Nickolov's RIA Session at AJAXWorld, March 18-20, in New York City

Designing a state of the art user interface (UI) in a very visual application that is managing a lot of elements posed significant challenge due to the nature of the application: virtualizing and running entire data centers through a browser. With thousands of objects to coordinate the UI architecture proved as critical as the implementation details.

Attendees will get a full case study on building application UI with AJAX – from architecture decisions, tool choice, and design implementation to performance testing procedures for multiple http calls per page refresh; rich client-like user interactions; security testing; and dealing with support of different browser versions.

After investigating different approached to the UI, 3Tera came to the conclusion that AJAX is the only technology that allows to build utility computing in a browse. Atendees will hear a highly compelling insight on the process of developing functionally rich front end to a very complex system. The presentation also addresses business and IT concerns, and will educate the audience with real-world examples of how companies are already operating and leveraging utility computing in a browser and benefiting from the AJAX based UI to deliver, provision and scale Web applications with ease.

Speaker Bio: Peter is a recognized expert in scalable infrastructure technologies including operating systems, networks and storage. One of the 3Tera founders, he has unique experience in delivering successfully new types of products in a fast-paced startup environment. Peter is the architect of the core technology behind 3Tera's award winning AppLogic grid operating system that enables utility computing for SaaS and Web 2.0 services. He is a serial entrepreneur who has founded four technology companies.

Prior to 3Tera, he founded Z-force, a storage networking company that pioneered file switching and NAS aggregation and was named one of Network World's "Top 10 Startups to Watch"; and Object Dynamics, a software company providing network infrastructure software.

In the last 20 years Peter has authored 24 patents and has over 30 innovations in the areas of operating systems, multithreading, kernel mode and real-time software, network protocols, file systems and computing resource aggregation.
