2008: Decision Year for RIAs - March 18-20, 2008 New York City

Download the Official Show Directory for 2008

Developers and managers are by now familiar with the usability benefits of user-centric Rich Internet Applications. The industry has matured, giving adopters the confidence to proceed. But many are still unsure whether AJAX is the answer, or whether one of the leading RIA alternatives might be a more suitable platform.

2008 will for many enterprises be the Decision Year for their choice of RIA platform, and AJAXWorld Conference & Expo 2008 (March 18-20, 2008) is the place to be if you want easy access under one roof to a welter of resources, ideas and examples to help you decide.

Because it's easy to misjudge priorities and invest in the wrong technology, AJAXWorld will help you invest in the right one for your particular business. It will help you find the optimal balance between business needs, technology potential, and enhanced user experience. AJAXWorld is where you can find what you're going to need for business survival and Web success in 2008.

AJAXWorld's 80+ technical sessions, Keynotes, Power Panels and General Session Demos will help you determine which Rich Internet Technology will provide the most meaningful impact in your business, organization or service. The conference program aims to inform and inspire you toward the detailed implementation plan that you're going to need in the next 12 months in your own initiative whether that's SaaS, financial services, healthcare, enterprise portals, ISV applications, or whatever.

The Expo floor additionally will allow you to follow up on the premier solutions already available and to choose which best suits your needs.

Come experience sessions by the most on-topic speaking faculty of the year, and benefit from their acuity and understanding about the tools that encourage and support superior user experience and the platforms that are fast emerging for the development and deployment rich-web applications. Then drill down further by talking to the deeply knowledgeable and industry-savvy exhibitors.

Don't forget to look out for extra pre-conference options. In 2008 we take pride in introducing for the first time, as a further extra option, our groundbreaking one-day AJAX Security Bootcamp, led by one of the world's foremost security experts. Hope to see you in New York City in March!

Technical sessions will cover challengers to AJAX such as new innovations like Silverlight and JavaFX. We will be dealing with performance and browser compatability issues, showcasing viable strategies for performing unit/stress testing on an AJAX application, and how you apply user interface patterns and user experience design to your AJAX project.

Every aspect of AJAX and rich-Web alternatives will be covered, and the emphasis throughout will be on actionable insights, real-world case studies, and up-to-date technical information and advice.

Jeremy Geelan

Conference Chair,


Can We Fix The Web?

The web needs fixing. The standards and recommendations that define the web were last revised in 1999. Since then, the web has grown from a document retrieval system into an application delivery system. It is overly complex, visually underpowered, and hopelessly insecure. Plus it is now under competitive assault by new proprietary platforms that hope to capture the next generation of applications. Can a system as large and as open as the web heal and adapt itself to the challenges of the 21st Century?

Speaker Bio: Douglas Crockford is the inventor of JSON. He is currently an architect at Yahoo!, having earlier been director of technology at Lucasfilm Ltd. Before that he was director of new media at Paramount and was founder and CEO of Electric Communities also known as

Introducing the world's first-ever full, one-day immersive "AJAX Security Bootcamp" - led by one of the world's foremost AJAX security expert and teacher!

This year we also introduce AJAX Security Bootcamp as a pre-conference event, led by world expert Billy Hoffman.

To be held for the first time on March 18, 2008 at the historic Roosevelt Hotel, AJAXWorld Security Bootcamp is a compelling, intensive, one-day, hands-on training program that will teach Web developers, Web designers, and other Web professionals how to build secure AJAX applications and demonstrate what the best practices are to mitigate security problems in AJAX applications.

ALL NEW FOR 2008 - iPhone Developer Summit
Master Native iPhone Application Development at AJAXWorld 2008 East

After the resounding success of the first-ever iPhone technical sessions at AJAXWorld on the West coast in September '07, SYS-CON Events has great pride in announcing that the world's first-ever 100% dedicated 2-day iPhone Developer Summit will be an integral part of the AJAXWorld Conference & Expo 2008 East in New York City (18-20 March, 2008).

The groundbreaking track is chaired by iPhone Developer's Journal editor-in-chief Kevin Hoffman. The release of the Apple iPhone and the iPod Touch has renewed interest in computing devices controlled with direct hand input (either by touch and/or pen), putting "gesture-based" interfaces squarely onto the menu of what developers want to learn more about.
