Silicon Valley JUG: Applying the Asynchronous Web

Emerging Ajax techniques–variously called Ajax Push, Comet, Reverse Ajax, and HTTP streaming–are bringing revolutionary changes to web application interactivity, moving the web into the Participation Age. Join us for a detailed introduction to the asynchronous web, covering the underlying protocols and APIs, the challenges for application servers, and the high-level techniques available to application developers. The techniques covered will allow you to add multiuser collaboration and notification features to your application, whether developed with Dojo, DWR, or ICEfaces, and whether deployed on Jetty, Tomcat, or GlassFish.
