AJAX Framework Alternatives To Be Discussed at AJAXWorld

Lightweight or Heavyweight? AJAX Experts Discuss With SYS-CON.TV Host Jeremy Geelan

There are a number of different frameworks that will do much of the heavy lifting for AJAX developers, from the well-known such as TIBCO GI, Dojo and ThinWire to the perhaps less well-known Taconite framework. Which is best suited to doing what job - and why? This fundamental question will be the central concern of this Lunch Time "Power Panel" during the first day of AJAXWorld Conference & Expo 2007 East.

The first  "Power Panel" on this subject - moderated by AJAXWorld 2006 Conference Chair and Host Jeremy Geelan and simulcast on SYS-CON.TV - was held 7:15PM - 8:00PM Wednesday, October 4, 2006 during the First International AJAXWorld Conference & Expo.

Theme: The Framework Wars: Lightweight vs Heavyweight
