Comet @ Ajax World 2008 West
By arungupta on Oct 21, 2008
|Jim and I presented on "Using Comet to
create a Two-Player Web Game" at Ajax World 2008 West
yesterday. The talk explained the basic concepts of Comet, showed how a
Tic Tac Toe game can be easily created using code walkthrough and then
talked about future directions. The slides are available here
and the code can be downloaded here.
A similar sample that can be deployed on Rails and Grails is described here. It uses GlassFish's support for multiple dynamic languages and associated web frameworks.
One of the benefits of delivering first talk in the morning is the ability to attend different sessions during the day. Of the different sessions I particularly enjoyed listening Bill Scott on Crafting Rich Web Interfaces.The talk explained six principles of rich web interaction with set of design patterns and real world examples. The slides are available here. All other sessions were mostly product pitches with very little value for developers.
Here are some pictures from the show:
