Web trends and technologies today are converging to do one thing particularly well: collaborate. All of us dream about the possibility to weave collaborative features from products like Google Wave, EtherPad, SubEthaEdit, Mozilla Bespin, Google Docs into our own applications. Ajax.org Platform combines technology and open standards into a solution to build web applications with rich collaborative features at minimum expense. The simple-yet-elegant, declarative API makes it easier to learn, while its openness in design allows it to be extended to the level you and your team are comfortable with. Forget lock-in of vendors and other libraries or frameworks, forget waiting for the Big Boys to open source their latest inventions. In this interactive session Ruben and Mike from the Ajax.org team will be presenting a series of demos and what is needed to make them tick.
