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.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic • Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it’s a mix of architectural style...

The Internet of Things (IoT) is making everything it touches smarter – smart devices, smart cars and smart cities. And lucky us, we’re just beginning to reap the benefits as we work toward a networked society. However, this technology-driven innovation is impacting more than just individuals. The IoT has an environmental impact as well, which brings us to the theme of this month’s #IoTuesday Twitter chat. The ability to remove inefficiencies through connected objects is driving change throughout every sector, including waste management. BigBelly Solar, located just outside of Boston, is trans...
