I’m organizing a BOF (Birds of a Feather) on Rich Internet Applications at the ETECH conference in San Diego next week. We’re meeting at 7:30 PM next Tuesday at Ball Room C of the Westin Horton Plaza in San Diego. It should be a lot of fun. RIA has been a big theme at previous etechs, so it should be a good bunch of people.
O’Reilly says that evening entrance is unmonitored. Feel free to join in whether you’re a conference attendee or not!
What are the trends in RIA development? Will 2005 be the year of the RIA? How does design change when we move from the location-based metaphor of the web to the application-like flow of an RIA? Which technology approach offers the most benefits, and what are the tradeoffs? And do users even find value in RIAs?
Feel free to bring a laptop with your software installed if you have an RIA you’d like to demo.
