If you want to attract and maintain a strong user base on your website today, two things are essential: a rich user experience and fresh, up-to-date content.
In its early years, the Web was filled with static websites that required user interaction to request new pages and discover updated content. Over time, new technologies, such as JavaScript and XmlHttpRequest, have increasingly brought about a shift in the way users browse the web. These advances allow websites to provide important feedback and updated content to users with fewer delays, network traffic, and webpage refreshes. Today, even newer innovations such as RSSCloud and PubSubHubbub are gaining momentum and are leading us down the road to a true Asynchronous Web.
During this seminar, we will step through the evolution of the Asynchronous Web and discuss some of the key technologies that have made new, richer user experiences possible and are changing the method and rate at which users are receiving updated content on the Web. The topics we'll cover include:

  • The Synchronous Web – Where we started and some of the limitations of synchronous user-browser interaction
  • Ajax - New advancements in XMLHttpRequest and highlights of 5 of the most popular Ajax toolkits, including ASP.NET Ajax
  • Rich Internet Applications - Creating richer user experiences through the use of popular browser plug-ins, including Microsoft Silverlight
  • The Real-Time Web - How concepts and technologies such as RSSCloud and PubSubHubbub enable companies and individuals to use free, open technologies to deliver content to users at near real-time speed
