Now that’s what I call a revolution

Posted in Ajax Links, Web Development on January 24, 2008 by Shaun

I never really liked the term Web 2.0 mainly because the revolutionary web 2.0 has been all repackaging of old technologies, never ending JavaScript Libraries all diong a slightly different thing to the last big thing and shiny glass graphics with reflections… Until Now!

As you know, I’m a fan of Aptana for Javascript development, I’ve moved to netbeans for Ruby and Java development but Aptana is still leagues ahead of everything else for Javascript based web development. Well the guy’s at Aptana have just released what could be considered the killer application of 2008 and I think the revolution is about to begin.

I introduce you to Jaxer Jaxer is the worlds first true Ajax server and quite simply it is amazing.  As a good friend said to me yesterday, ‘this, my friend, is the future’.

I want to give you loads of detail here but to be honest it would only be a case of re-inventing the wheel, so go on over to the Jaxer web site and check it out.

What!  you’re still reading this… get lost already! ;0)

In a bizarre off the wall conversation this afternoon my pal Lummie came up with Beerile, this is a new term for the condition otherwise known as ‘Brewers droop’ or ‘can’t get it up coz I’ve had too much beer!’  Fantastic!

Big Release day for Prototype 1.6 and 1.8

Posted in Ajax Links, Prototype, Script.Aculo.Us, Web Development on November 8, 2007 by Shaun

Regular readers know I am a fan of the Prototype JS Library and the accompanying library.  Despite moving into EXT at work, I still like to stay in touch with Prototype and still use it at home.  1.6 is a big leap forward and includes some really nice changes.

Ajaxian have a long and reasonably detailed post on the subject so I won’t re-invent the wheel here, it’s worth checking the new releases out and there’s now a book that will help you get the most from this pair of awesome script libraries.

The ultimate bus ride?

Posted in Ajax Links on October 19, 2007 by Shaun

Stick a bunch of developers on a bus add a splash of new technology, an itinerary of stops and an eagerness to share and it appears you get a wild road trip.

If I could find a way of convincing my boss that this is something we need to do, I’d do it!

Here’s a neat video of Adobe’s recent On AIR Bus tour..
