Backbase CEO Jouk Pleiter to Present at Real-World AJAX Seminar in San Jose

To Present on "AJAX Best Practices"

Backbase CEO and co-founder Jouk Pleiter (pictured) will reprise a presentation concerning AJAX Best Practices at the Real-World AJAX Seminar April 24 at the San Jose Hilton. Pleiter initially presented this information to an enthusiastic audience at the inaugural Real-World AJAX Seminar in New York on March 13.

As Pleiter explains, "AJAX is now so popular that we tend to forget that it's only one year ago that the term AJAX was coined. Because the technology is so young, there is a huge need for AJAX best-practices, and there are few people who can provide these."

Pleiter says that Backbase has been working with AJAX for more than three years, and has been able to create a large set of best practices. His talk identifies the typical AJAX challenges, and presents the best practices that will enable developers to become more productive with their AJAX projects.

Backbase has emerged as a leader in the field of Rich Internet Applications and AJAX development software. Backbase's clients include ING, ABN AMRO, TNT, KPN, Comsys and Heineken. The company operates globally with offices in San Mateo (North America) and Amsterdam (Europe).

Since 1995, Jouk has been an entrepreneur: he founded three successful software companies. Prior to Backbase, Jouk was part of the founding team at the web content management company Tridion, where he led the product management operations, and was driving the company's efforts to become a leader in the European WCM software market. Jouk previously was part of the founding team at the Interactive Agency Twinspark where he grew the company to a leading market position in Europe and was instrumental in the sale of Twinspark to Agency.com. He has an MBA from the University of Groningen.
