Today, I have attended to a developerWorks chat, conducted by Bill Higgins, about Making the move to Ajax.

There were lots of IBM folks, as Grady Booch, Patrick Mueller, Matt Lavin, Bob Goodman and Gino Bustelo (leader and commiter on the AJAX Tools Framework) and Adam Peller (Dojo committer), as well as some software analyst as Cote.

It was very interesing, mainly because the format, as you have the ability to interact with people doing innovative projects in Ajax. We talked about which toolkit/framework are most used, their strengths and weakness, which are the opinions on Ajax (and REST) at the very senior technical and mgmt. level, accessibility/standards (a11y and i18n), Microsoft strategy towards Ajax, openLaszlo or ATF/WTP JS editor plans.

If you could not attend the chat, you can read the full transcript.

And remember that tomorrow, December 7, there will be another chat, where Grady Booch will lead an online discussion and answer your questions about the new tools just released from IBM Rational. More details at Grady Booch answers your questions about this week’s Rational tools release.
