Delegates to the 6th International AJAXWorld will be able to join Guthrie as he discusses how Microsoft is contributing to help move the Web forward via a commitment to standards development and Rich Internet Applications - and learn from him how Silverlight, AJAX and media all enable a whole new generation of RIAs.

Then the very next day they will be able to join Adobe’s Chief Technology Officer Kevin Lynch, who helped originally coin the term "Rich Internet Application" in 2002, as he demonstrates how Flash and HTML come together to make engaging, effective user experiences across operating systems and browsers and focused on real-world examples of RIA technologies available today, including the free, open source Flex framework.

Throughout the 90+ breakout sessions that complement these two top keynotes attendees will see countless demonstrations of cutting-edge RIA development at work, and will truly able to explore for themselves, throughout the three intense days of the show, the future of Web applications both within and beyond the browser.
