Ajax Experience Presentation

I’ve finished preparing my case-study presentation, Building Great UI, the Netflix Way for The Ajax Experience. The development approach and challenges faced implementing several of the Netflix Ajax features are central to the discussion. Each case-study gives great insight into the goals, issues and results of developing each feature. The case-studies include the Starbar Rating Widget, the Add-to-Queue behavior, and the movie detail bubble among others. In addition to the specific Ajax interactions, the discussion emphasizes how data-driven development and usability testing work together, creating a great customer experience.

The Ajax Experience in May of 2006 was a fabulous conference, and I encourage anyone that is looking to improve their web development skills to attend. I’m very excited about presenting in Boston this October alongside such great folks. I can’t speak highly enough about each of the speakers I saw in May. The great news is, they are all speaking again in Boston. I’m looking forward to another great 3 days.
