For the last 16 years, I've been a supportive member of the Greater Boston
Chapter of the Association for Computing Machinery (GBCACM). They are one
of the oldest chapters in the country and have a history of bringing great
educational programs at a very accessible cost.
This year, they are hosting a 2-day event called Deep AJAX on October 14 &
15 in Cambridge, MA. They've put together a great program that's a great
in-depth introduction to AJAX with some of the world's expert speakers. All
at an amazingly good price.
If you are working with AJAX, thinking AJAX might be in your future, or are
just curious about this new wave for developing web-based interactions, I
highly recommend you check this program out. You can find more information http://www.gbcacm.org.
