We are glad to announce that we will talk about XForms and Ajax at Solutions Linux - Solutions Open Source in Paris. This will take place on Thursday, February 1, 2007 afternoon, in the "Web 2.0 - Towards an application-oriented web" ("Web 2.0: vers un web orienté applications") session. Here is the abstract:
Handling interactive web forms with XForms (Gérer les formulaires web de manière interactive avec XForms)
When talking about Web 2.0 technologies such as Ajax, not many think about XForms. However XForms, a W3C recommendation since 2003, is gathering momentum as the same technology that enables Google Maps also allows deploying complex but user-friendly enterprise forms to the majority of deployed web browsers (including Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari and Opera) without the need for plugins or other client installation.
In this presentation, we introduce XForms technology, explain the basics of Ajax-based XForms, and show how you can use open-source software to implement end-to-end forms solutions based on standards such as XForms and XML, while using cutting-edge technology like Ajax to make your forms user-friendly and easy to deploy.
The presentation will conclude with a series of demonstrations based on open source software.
The talk will be in English or French depending on the audience.
