I have a bit silent recently on my blog as I have been traveling around the globe talking with developers and companies about AJAX. I have found that many people and companines are using AJAX today.
In November I had the chance to speak with developers at the JavaOne Japan event on AJAX. In Japan, there is a strong interest in AJAX and from some conversations with developers and companies following the conference I realized that AJAX really is a global phenomenon.
Last week I had the chance to speak at Apple with some of the developers from the Apple Store about AJAX and to my surprise I found out that they are already using AJAX on their production site.
If you configure the options of a Mac notice you no longer have a page refresh as the total cost is estimated on the left side bar.
This is a great example of using AJAX to enhance the user experience. Please note that I'm not selling Macs here nor do I own any Apple stock.
Currently, I am in Bangkok, Thailand to speak at the Sun Tech Days 2006 Bangkok . Registration at this event is said to be around 1800 people and James Gosling will be speaking so it should be a fun event. Stay tunned for more.
If you are more interested in AJAX and you are in the Bay Area I will be speaking at the Silicon Valley Chapter of the ACCU on February 8th on the BluePrints for AJAX running on Glassfish . Please come if you get a chance.
