With Future of Mobile and a trip to the land of the Opera vikings behind me, I focused (in a zen, Yoda meets Gandhi kind of style) on my next prize - Patrick Griffiths and co's new Ajax focussed conference. It was interesting to see this, as I was kind of under the impression that the Ajax craze had died and gone to heaven a little while ago, and people were now focusing on actual real functionality as opposed to just buzzwords...but it seems I was wrong - I should have guessed after reading uncov ardently for the last few weeks.* ;-)
*Ok, I was feeling in a cynical mood today, and I'd just like to state that this should in no way reflect on the actual conference itself - it was really cool, and it is good to see some people really concentrating on fixing the issues we have with Ajax...but there are still some people that care more about the buzzwords and the zippy effects than the actual functionality and usability.
There was a lot of great content in this conference, and it seemed very nicely organized - what follows is a round up of the talks.
