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.

Selby joins a faculty of industry thought leaders and practitioners that includes:

  • The discoverer of JSON - Douglas Crockford

"When we talk about cloud without compromise what we're talking about is that when people think about 'I need the flexibility of the cloud' - it's the ability to create applications and run them in a cloud environment that's far more flexible,” explained Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
