Presentation @ CommunityOne
By bytor on May 05, 2008
It's been a while since blogging! A lot has changed since late 2007 :) I have moved to the Portal group, working on Sun's next generation portal technology, providing lightweight widget aggregation and presentation, multi-language widget communication, and a host of other enterprise features.
Today I am at CommunityOne, Sun's free-to-attend conference the day before JavaOne. I did a presentation at 11am on "Breaking Down Barriers: Widgets, Mashups, and WOA for the Enterprise" where I did a general overview of the technology used to create "Web 2.0" widgets using web APIs made available by the likes of Google, Amazon, Facebook, Flikr, and others. It was the first time doing this presentation, so there were the usual flubs, "uh's" and uncomfortable pauses but generally it went well, with some excellent post-preso questions from the audience. I'll post the video as soon as it hits the CommunityOne/JavaOne site. Thanks to all those who attended. I also showed a demo of Project WebSynergy, the moniker we've attached to the future of middleware widget aggregation platforms. Thanks to all who attended. There will be additional press releases on Wednesday associated with this new project. More to follow...
