Description

Most Java developers are quite happy to focus their efforts on server-side code; they view the browser as an untamed world that is plagued by cross-browser incompatibilities, cryptic markup, and sub-standard scripting languages. However, new approaches are emerging which attempt to “tame” the browser. In this talk, Tim will present technologies such as the Dojo toolkit, JSON, and REST. But more importantly, he’ll present it from the perspective of the J2EE developer. If you’ve ever wondered how to leverage “Web 2.0” technologies without becoming an HTML/CSS/JavaScript expert, this talk is for you.

Speaker

Tim Crowley is an Enterprise Architect who works for an International company that makes Machines for Business. His current responsibilities focus on integrating global systems and exploring new and emerging technologies.
