RIA Talks

Over the next few months I will be covering SoCal doing a talk on Rich Internet Applications (RIA) using ASP.NET AJAX 4.0 and Silverlight. The inspiration for this talk comes from the convergence I see between some of the Web 2.0 technologies and Silverlight and the coming of age of Web 3.0. I am hoping I will be able to cover some of the challenges you will face when interacting with these technologies and provide some guidance as you move forward creating applications of this type.

Building RIA Applications for Web 3.0


Web 3.0 will prove to be the incarnation that moves us into highly interactive applications that exploit the advances in UI graphics, module web applications and the ever increasing internet connection speed to provide users with an online experience never seen before. In this session we will take a look into how some of the new Microsoft Web technologies (ASP.NET AJAX 4.0 and Silverlight) will play a role in this new frontier. First will take a look at ASP.NET AJAX 4.0 and how some of the new features like templates and data binding are contributing to a pure client-side story for web development. Then we will dive into Silverlight exploring the extensive UI model, robust communication stack and reliance on .NET and how these features provide a robust environment for creating truly interactive module web applications. Finally we will look at how the HTML Bridge in Silverlight provides interaction between the dynamic language world of JavaScript and the static language world of .NET and how to best work in these two environments to provide a rich Web 3.0 experience.
