Think Fast: Accelerate AJAX Development with Appcelerator

Jeff Haynie's RIA Session at AJAXWorld, March 18-20, in New York City

Jeff Haynie will introduce the audience to Appcelerator’s open-source RIA platform. Attendees will learn how Appcelerator has been able to help developers create AJAX-based RIAs in less than 1/3 of the time, with up to 90 percent less code, and with no Javascript or third-party toolkits. Key takeaways from the session will include:

  • Developing fully-functional, client-only prototypes without writing a line of server code
  • Creating service-oriented UIs that can simultaneously access services in any language without code changes
  • Decoupling client and server components for accelerated development, simplified maintenance and rapid iterations
Haynie will also discuss the current technology options for rapid RIA development and how developers can leverage pre-built AJAX widgets, Web Expression Language, and other open standards-based languages to create RIAs with more functionality and less code.

Appcelerator is a 100% open-source RIA platform built entirely around open standards.

Speaker Bio: Jeff Haynie is co-founder and CEO of Appcelerator. He started Appcelerator to provide a true open-source solution to enterprise RIA and SOA-based services development, after growing frustrated by the limited options and complexity in other solutions through his own development work. Prior to starting Appcelerator, Jeff served as co-founder and CTO of Vocalocity and CTO of eHatchery, an extension of Bill Gross’ ideaLab. Jeff is an expert software developer and entrepreneur. He has been active in standards development, as well as a contributor to open-source projects, including early work on JBoss. For more on Jeff Haynie, visit his blog at http://blog.jeffhaynie.us.

Where many organizations get into trouble, however, is that they try to have a broad and deep knowledge in each of these areas. This is a huge blow to an organization's productivity. By automating or outsourcing some of these pieces, such as databases, infrastructure, and networks, your team can instead focus on development, testing, and deployment. Further, organizations that focus their attention on these areas can eventually move to a test-driven development structure that condenses several l...

Never mind that we might not know what the future holds for cryptocurrencies and how much values will fluctuate or even how the process of mining a coin could cost as much as the value of the coin itself - cryptocurrency mining is a hot industry and shows no signs of slowing down. However, energy consumption to mine cryptocurrency is one of the biggest issues facing this industry. Burning huge amounts of electricity isn't incidental to cryptocurrency, it's basically embedded in the core of "mini...
