How AJAX Can Bring Cross-Platform Rich User Interfaces to Web Applications

Steve Benfield To Speak August 17 at South Florida JUG Meeting

"Though it's been around for a while, AJAX (Asynchronous Javascript + XML) is now a hot topic in the application developer community because it brings cross-platform rich user interfaces to web applications without having to use products like Microsoft .NET or Macromedia," said Steve Benfield, VP of strategy & technology evangelism at ClearNova, Inc., as it was announced that executives from ClearNova will be championing AJAX  in their session at the South Florida Java User's Group in the Miami area on August 17.

The discussion will be led by Benfield - pictured here talking to SYS-CON.TV about AJAX earlier this month. "We plan to explain what all the fuss is about, dispel some myths and advise how best to take advantage of the trend," Benfield said. 

The discussion is titled "Using AJAX to Build Rich Internet Applications," and will take place Wednesday, August 17 from 6:30 to 9:00 PM at Nova Southeastern University, University Park Plaza, 3424 University Drive, Davie, FL 33328-2018.
