JavaScript Conferences This Fall: The Ajax Experience and The Rich Web Experience

Thursday, July 30th, 2009 @ 1:26 pm | filed under: 'Industry' News

Many of you may have noticed looking at the schedule of speakers and events at the Ajax Experience (this September in Boston) that many of the speakers from previous years are not present. I will not be attending, and the same is true for the Prototype team, the Dojo team, the jQuery team, as well as speakers like PPK and others. There’s a reason for this that I won’t go into, but I think it will suffice to say that the conference is shaping up to be a little less… complete this year.

Instead I’ll be speaking at the Rich Web Experience in Orlando, FL, Dec 1-4. I’ll be giving a few talks there (3 or 4) and it’s looking to be like a much more interesting conference. If you’re into MooTools I hope to see you there and if you’re into JavaScript and rich web apps in general, then I think the conference should be worth the trip. There’s not a lot of detail on the RWE site yet, but I hope to see some stuff up soon. You can actually get past the “coming soon” page and into the bios of speakers from the last conference and get an idea of the kinds of topics covered.

If you end up going to the Ajax Experience this year, please let me know how it goes. I’m curious to see how it fairs without any representation from all the frameworks…
