Developed in response to the needs of the community, TheServerSide Presents TheClientSide is a conference within a conference; a community event focusing on the needs of developers who work on distributed application client. TheServerSide Presents TheClientSide takes place at TheServerSide Java Symposium (TSSJS) Vegas in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA on March 17-19, 2010. TSSJS has opened its call for presentations for this unique event.
About the event:
TheServerSide presents TheClientSide will offer a broader range of client and user interface technologies and techniques, such as JavaFX, Flash/Flex, Silverlight, more user interface frameworks, and UI architectures such as JSF. If it runs on or interacts with the client, we want to hear about it.
About the audience:
Our audience is developers who work on distributed application clients. This includes Java developers who use JSF, Ajax, JavaFX or similar client technology; Microsoft developers who use Ajax, ASP.NET, or Silverlight; and SOA developers who are building service front ends on any platform. Fully 85% of our potential audience members are engaged in building Rich Internet Applications of some sort. 75% said they were working with rich Web front-ends, while composite applications (30%), mobile (18%), and mashups (17%) were also popular. For those working with rich Web front-ends, Ajax (80%) was by far the most popular approach. The most popular Ajax frameworks were jQuery (38%), GWT (23%), Prototype (23%), and RichFaces (19%). The biggest challenges noted in client-side development were cross-browser incompatibilities (63%), technical complexity (47%), lack of client-side design skills (38%), performance (36%), and security (30%).
Types of Presentation:
We are looking for exciting technical presentations that address developer’s challenges with pragmatic, proven solutions; attendees should leave your session with tips and tricks, tools and techniques that they can immediately use. Successful case studies based on your own experience are also popular. TSSJS is a conference by developers for developers, so please – no fluff, self-promotion, or sales pitches. We’ll be keeping a close eye on this. Presentations will be 60 minutes including Q & A.

1. Web frameworks,
