More afternoon sessions
Intel and LignUP
Not sure that this one is going to be about – here we go. Community software managers help developers be successful on the intel platform. Talking about platform and context awareness. Intel has a web 2.0 tdk. C++ plugins for FFand IE http://intel.com/software/web20tdk
Microsoft – windows live services
Scott Mauvais – technical architect – kinda like tech marketing where they help prototype customers solutions. Going to show how to combine live properties instead of mashing other sources. It is going to be a mapping app – Look at photos for your and your contact and geolocate all of them.
Going to show single sign on, storage for photos, contacts, and a map. Man, doing all these live internet demos is scary – the MS guy is having problems but it works now. Showing adding pictures to a location. Both MS and AOL do prompting for permission to do stuff with the data.
They are definitely going after ESRI with the internet mapping. He demos a oil fields visualization in the Gulf of Mexico that does a advanced visualization, asset managment, and workflow.
He then also states that he (and not the product team) thinks that the live properties are going the way of Office – not so great when it started but excellent integration among the different pieces. So given all the stuff that happens in their live apps they are going to leverage integration. They are also thinking of integration this with Office live server.
GOOG Mashup Editor
Trying to be able to create mashups quickly and easily. Need to handle feeds, give a UI, and give infrastructure.
All feeds are in Atom like GData
UI Controls need to be cross browser compat
Simple declaration of UI components like HTML
Simple data modeled after a feed – so all data is from a feed
Provide a sandbox with one click deploy
They use <gm: tags to add modules and to create templates
Demo : they have an editor with specialized tags for google mashup things – it then gets compiled on the server and then hosted. Pretty easy syntax. This is how you also build gadgets. Another demo showing how you can make an editable feed that you can edit your own data. Now a demo to create a list and a map – state parks listed with maps and google base for camping areas. Now google is having the live on the internet issues.
