Ajax is history - Build real time apps in JavaScript

Submitted Feb 5, 2012

How to build the next generation of real-time browser based apps with JavaScript and related technologies.


Ajax is history. After having built Review19 -- Review19.com provides next generation real-time collaborative tools -- I’d like to share my approach, the technologies used, the architecture followed by a quick demo and code walk through.


  • Good sense of humor
  • Appreciation for random katrina kaif pics inserted between slides
  • Knowledge of web app development in general
  • More JavaScript (Node, NPM etc.) stack knowledge, the better

Speaker bio

I’m a passionate programmer and product developer. I’ve been programming professionally since 2002 and I bring expertise in both front-end and back-end development.

In the last ten years, I’ve successfully executed freelance, open source and enterprise projects. I have been part of cross-functional and cross-cultural teams and I’ve had the opportunity to work with some very interesting people and companies.

I enjoy building browser based, real-time apps using innovative technologies including Node.js, Socket.io, Express.js, HTML5, JQuery, SugarJS, CSS3 etc.

Enterprise technologies that interest me are primarily Python and Scala. I’ve been working with NoSQL databases — MongoDB and Google Data Store APIs in particular.

Other technologies that I’ve had fun with over the years are Adobe Flex, Java (Spring, Hibernate and popular enterprise frameworks), PHP 5 and related platforms, frameworks and libraries.

I’m a keen open-source enthusiast and my GitHub [1] profile contains contributions to various Node.js, Scala, Python and Adobe Flex projects.

I’m the author of the Apache Maven 3 Cookbook [3] (Packt Publishing, ISBN 978-1-849512-442) which is available for purchase in stores and on Barnes and Nobles, Amazon and Flipkart.

I’m the creator of Review19 [5] - a next generation, real-time project collaboration tool.
