Wow. I’m impressed. For the past few days, Gmail has been hanging when I try to attach a file. It doesn’t matter what type of file it is or how big it is. More times than not, it hangs. The hang happens as soon as Gmail shows the bar that displays the percent loaded. I have to force-qu...

This is great and the programming model for communicating with the Polling Duplex channel is brain-dead simple. It does NOT get any easier to implement push data to a RIA - not in Flash, not in AIR, and certainly not in JavaFX. The problem is that this solution doesn't scale. On the se...

Ha ha! Trick question! SproutCore is a client-side application framework (unlike, say, Google Web Toolkit).

No part of SproutCore “runs” on the server, and SproutCore contains no “server-side” libraries....

Many of the concepts first proposed and extolled during the Internet hype curve in the mid-1990s are now bearing fruit. Perhaps we should think of cloud computing as less than a separate hype curve, and more as the realization of the original Internet value curve , now some 15 years in...
As the line between browser-based and desktop-based applications blurs, and as approaches for abstracting functionality and information from user interfaces develop, other markets will eventually merge with the currently separately identifiable RIA market. Furthermore, as the Internet ...

Too often I hear people talk about adding AJAX-enabled fancy UI elements to their website or web application to make it more “Web 2.0″ style. While many Web 2.0 applications do include these elements of AJAX,  gradients,  and glossy style, those features are not what chara...

More from my Mix09 talk “building business applications with Silverlight 3”. Many customers have told me that they love Entity Framework and LinqToSql, but that they are not always able to use them in their projects just yet. In fact the number of folks that are using ADO.NET DataSet, ...

When you’re working with JSON, performance and security are often opposing, yet equally important concerns. One of these areas of contention is handling the JSON strings returned by a server. Most JavaScript libraries do a great job of abstracting away the details, but the underlying p...
