I was preparing my slides for the upcoming AjaxWorld Conference in New York
next Tuesday, where I compare different technologies for creating rich
Internet applications. The slides for the big players on the market are
ready, but I was looking for one more – something that would fall into
a category of cool RIA. And I found one.
These days RIA tools are created mainly to two groups of people: Web
Developers and UI Designers. The second group is represented by creative
people who can design screens but are not programmers. Big guys like Adobe
are trying to come with tools that would bring together these two groups of
people who currently live in different planets. For example, the rumor has it
that Adobe is going to release Thermo Beta this Summer. It allows designers
to drag and drop and Flex code will be automatically generated based on their
