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.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, shared examples from a wide range of industries – including en...
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. Jack Norris reviews best practices to show how companies develop, deploy, and dynamically update these applications and how this data-first...

Consumers increasingly expect their electronic "things" to be connected to smart phones, tablets and the Internet. When that thing happens to be a medical device, the risks and benefits of connectivity must be carefully weighed. Once the decision is made that connecting the device is beneficial, medical device manufacturers must design their products to maintain patient safety and prevent compromised personal health information in the face of cybersecurity threats. In his session at @ThingsExpo...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
