Building Rich User Interfaces in Dreamweaver

Nitobi's Andre Charland will discuss "AJAX for the Masses" at AJAXWorld 2008 East

Web application developers and designers often give up on building rich, interactive user interfaces because they lack the JavaScript skills to make it happen. AJAX development power tools--including Dreamweaver, Spry and off-the-shelf AJAX components--make it easy to build rich user interfaces in AJAX with no JavaScript coding.
Andre Charland will demonstrate how to install, set up and configure extensions to Dreamweaver, and will use them to build simple, rich interface AJAX apps. After this session, even beginner developers will be able to add AJAX interactions to web applications. This session is a must for ambitious, novice and intermediate designers anxious to use AJAX in their applications.

Speaker Bio: Andre Charland is co-founder and CEO at Nitobi Inc. An advocate for usability and user experience, he speaks regularly on AJAX and Web usability. Most recently Andre presented at MAX and on the Adobe AIR Bus Tour. He is the co-author of "Enterprise Ajax" and maintains his own blog at http://blogs.nitobi.com/andre.
