Tech Talk on Thin Server Architecture and Dojo at Google
While I was in the neighborhood, I managed to get invited to do a tech talk at Google's Mountain View offices this last Friday. I tried to describe the drawbacks with traditional server-centric web frameworks and to use Dojo as an example of how to build true client applications which lead to an increased efficiency for the development team and hence to lower production and maintenance costs.
People were in general very nice but razor-sharp and to the point. Very good discussions afterward focusing on build systems and SEO issues.
Here's the slides themselves;
And here is the Youtube video of my presentation as it is;
Alex Martelli was there as well, and had to comment on the size of my computer :) Erk Arvidsson who should have been my presenter (since I was so nervous I jus got up and presented myself as I usually do, sorry Erik!) took some pictures of relative computer sizes between mine and Alex's;
