Jack Moffitt - JSConf 2009

Grown tired of the AJAX buzzword blues? Jack Moffitt takes us on a whirlwind tour of Strophe for building beautiful XMPP based applications in pure JavaScript using Bidirectional-streams Over Synchronous HTTP (BOSH) which will most likely be the next evolution of web technologies. The focus concept is the "Real Time Web" and how to actually accomplish low latency rich data applications that put AJAX to shame. With Strophe you can leverage all the goodness of XMPP at the client side. It is a very exciting technology and great deep tech talk from the one of the geniuses behind the brand new Collecta.


JSConf focuses on two things, presenting mind-altering JavaScript technology during the daytime and providing exceptional "networking" parties during the evenings. JavaScript is exploding on the scene despite years of being behind the curtain as the workhorse of the web. JSConf is right there to expose and help push the state of the art with JavaScript in the browser, server, mobile, and desktop environments. One of the key differentiators about JSConf is that it is put on by a (crazy) group of JavaScript developers just like you, so we ensure that everything that matters is taken care.
