Special Purpose Application Servers
Gregor J. Rothfuss, PostNuke

Track: PHP
Date: Thursday, July 25
Time: 1:45pm - 2:30pm
Location: Harbor Island I

There is a place for special purpose application servers alongside the more general-purpose application servers. While traditional application servers focus on transaction support and other advanced concepts, specialized application servers focus on quick development as well as allowing less technically inclined people the ability to easily develop websites.

PostNuke is such a software, having grown from a Content Management System written in PHP to an environment to write web applications in a community that is rapidly growing in popularity.

Core Architecture
What core architecture choices were made to balance power with ease of use for both developers and end users? What lessons were drawn from projects that focused only on technical excellence, and neglected the needs of entry-level programmers?

Usage scenarios
We look at usage scenarios from education, content management and community building from the perspective of a non-programmer, focusing on doing more in less time as well as full scale commercial usage potential.

A look into the crystal ball
Where is this software category going? What trends influence its future?
