Taming The Beast: Managing Complexity In Ajax Applications

A session at @media Ajax 2008

Tuesday 16th September, 2008

11:50am to 12:50pm (GMT)

Web applications are often complex beasts but when you introduce Ajax into the mix things can get really out of control. This session will help you unravel the wires of your application and reveal techniques and tools to keep your Ajax heavy applications simple, maintainable and robust. It will cover managing the state between client and server, ways of writing maintainable JavaScript, performance considerations, common client/server interaction patterns and taking advantage of server and client-side frameworks.

You will come away with a set of best practices for developing Ajax applications but also knowing when to break the rules.
