Afterwards Jason Purdy talked about “Selecting an AJAX Framework”. His presentation mainly based on a simple application he has implemented with the frameworks Prototype, Mootools, JQuery, Dojo and YUI and compared the runtime and the resulting code of each implementation. It was great to see, that Dojo always was on top. He also took into account that the documentation of a framework is very important when selecting it and he came to the point that in the meantime all framworks are documented well. I’m really happy, other people recognize, that the fact, that Dojo has a bad documentation is not true anymore (have a look at http://docs.dojocampus.org).
The first day at the Ajax in Action really was a great success for our company and we represented Dojo very well. I definitely see a bright future for Dojo in Germany and I’m proud that we are part of spreading the word about it.
