AJAX World RIA Conference News - AJAX & RIA with Server-Side JavaScript

Ian Selby's Session at the 6th International AJAX World RIA Conference & Expo in October (San Jose, 20-22 October)

Server-side JavaScript (SSJS) is growing in popularity fast since developers realize it can drastically simplify Web app creation by letting you use using the same technology stack on both the client and the server. While server-side JavaScript is not new - it was a part of Netscape’s vision 10 years ago - times have significantly changed with 10x faster hardware and networks, making that original vision for the Web now a reality.

This Fall at the 6th International AJAXWorld RIA Conference & Expo (October 20-22, 2008) in San Jose, CA, Ian Selby will be giving a session that no developer who uses JavaScript or ActionScript will want to miss.

In this session delegates will learn how to:
  • Overcome common hurdles and pitfalls of client-side only JavaScript development.
  • Speed up development time by cutting out extra server-side code and processing scripts that are no longer necessary.
  • Clean up your code base by reducing (or even eliminating) the number of languages needed to leverage to accomplish common tasks (i.e. Why bother with server-side PHP scripts to fetch database results when you can do it all in JavaScript on the server? Why mess with Curl to fetch content that your JavaScript code can grab in one line?)

Selby will also get hands-on with a live demonstration of how to:

  • Create JSON data services for your Ajax, Flash, Flex and Silverlight apps
  • Implement JavaScript RMI
  • Use your favorite Ajax libraries server-side.
  • Manipulate the DOM server-side
  • Talk to databases, file systems, networks, and remote sites or services (cross-domain XHRs are now a possibility!
The session will show Web developers how they can put their JavaScript skills to work on the server side using technologies like Mozilla Rhino and Aptana Jaxer, which embeds the entire Mozilla browser on the server side.
