How to Build the Coolest iPhone AJAX Application in 24 Hours

"NewsMatch" exemplifies the power of the OpenLaszlo platform and its cinematic user interface

Apple’s official announcement that AJAX is the iPhone’s SDK of choice reinforced Laszlo Systems’ vision, having already built its OpenLaszlo RIA development platform to inherently support AJAX. This session will discuss how OpenLaszlo is architected to work with iPhone today, and will provide insight into how Laszlo gurus, Ben Shine and Bret Simister, created an animated news game from scratch in only 24 hours. Named one of the “8 coolest iPhone apps” by Wired Magazine, “NewsMatch” exemplifies the power of the OpenLaszlo platform and its cinematic user interface.
