AJAX Development: Scary Tales from AJAXWorld

And the hottest trends in web app development

Jeff Haynie's blog

Last week, we attended AJAXWorld in San Jose and chatted with developers about some amazing innovations happening within the AJAX community. Beyond their experiences with AJAX, we wanted to uncover developers' opinions about the hottest trends in web app development and also their worst coding nightmares. In the spirit of Halloween, we compiled our findings into some fun (and spooky) videos.

In these videos, find out what developers really think about the wonders and downfalls of IE6, hear scary tales of back end integration gone bad, and get a glimpse of a terrifying world without client/server architecture. But don't be too frightened. Jeff and Nolan, our fearless leaders, also discuss how Appcelerator is solving some of the toughest problems of application development. And you'll just have to watch the videos to find out everything you ever wanted to know about Barack Obama, John McCain, and their relationship to open web technologies.
