BungeeLabs in the afternoon
Had an excellent brownie at lunch – moist and chocolately…
Another great demo with contacts and google maps – dragging and dropping contacts and getting mapping and routing.
The IDE to build apps is an Ajax application and is done only on the server. They have some great UI going – for developers it resembles VisualStudio or netbeans but it is a web app. You can bound controls to the same field as so they share state in real time. They have versioning built into the system and you can choose which to deploy from the source control. Pieces of the functionality can also be shared with other developers as controls with different licenses. You can also build a team and share the source and build.
The whole thing is running in BungeeLogic which is a C like language but written specifically for these on-demand type applications. Their IDE is hosted in bungee as well so eating their own dogfood.
They use a utility based model – they charge you for hosting the app based upon how many hits you get. No charge to develop.
Really interesting tech and ideas – they definitely have some issues left to grapple with, such the behind the firewall deployment, but the stuff they have looks hot…
