After having quite exhaustive flights on the weekend (guys, 7 hours in Chicago O Hare are no fun), I spend today 13 hours in great sessions.
I will be preparing a slideset on some of the key information I was able to gather today for our company blog, so just a few words on more or less private stuff.
Boy, last time I was in US I did not notice that in US everything costs extra. I thought 219$ for the room is expensive, but its not. it is 219+tax+hbid+pid (whats those two?)+newspaper (which you can cancel) and its not including breakfast. Luckily I could get hold onto meeting room wifi, free for people with the AjaxWorld password, otherwise I would have to pay also for wifi extra.
My personal highlight was a presentation from the founders of Kaazing, who talked about Server-Side Events and WebSockets. Good stuff, and I am very eager to try it out.
From company perspective perhaps the most interesting finding was the product called KITE from Keynote.
More about this then later.
Heading now to the aftershow party
