Rich Internet Applications

Date: Tuesday, March 15
Time: 7:30pm - 8:30pm
Location: Ballroom C

Moderated by Jonathan Boutelle, Uzanto Consulting

Javascript Rich Internet Applications (like google maps and oddpost) have burst onto the scene in the last six months, with a host of new applications that communicate asynchronously with the server and thus eliminate "page refresh" from the user experience (using the XMLHttpRequest API). Meanwhile, existing XML-based development frameworks that export SWF files (like Lazslo and FLEX) are gaining traction.

What are the trends in RIA development? Will 2005 be the year of the RIA? How does design change when we move from the location-based metaphor of the web to the application-like flow of an RIA? Which technology approach offers the most benefits, and what are the tradeoffs? And do users even find value in RIAs?

Feel free to bring a laptop with your software installed if you have an RIA you'd like to demo.
