Shows Notes

  • Sidebar: What do “business analysts” do now-a-days?
  • What’s up with “HTML 5”? Watching the spec, using dojo.
  • What’s up with JavaScript as a “real language” now-a-days? Bill’s experience using JavaScript in RTC over the years.
  • JavaScript everywhere – JavaScript on the server side, as Charles says, “JavaScript is the lingua franca of the cloud.”
  • Using REST(ful) vs. RPC style protocols, a topic Bill has written about over the years (the 2006 piece he references and more recently, on REST in Jazz). For front-end communications, but also for communications between components on the back-end.
