Ajax, Mashups, Camps, and Pits

February 6th, 2006 · No Comments

I’ve been working on a couple of pieces of client side browser based code lately that I hope to share in the coming weeks. And what I’ve finding is that an Ajax Mashup is basically the same kind of stuff I’ve been doing for several years. 

It started when Evan Davis and I hacked the salesforce.com API in a hotel conference room in Melbourne, Australia. Within a couple of days we had built the first CTI integration, complete with screen pop, to salesforce. That code eventually became the Echopass (www.echopass.com) salesforce.com (www.salesforce.com) integration.

The other day I noticed what I hope to be a trend. “Non-Conventions” setup by guys that just want to create some cool stuff. The organizers setup these small events where the main purpose is to learn, share, and collaborate using some of the hottest new technologies.

It looks like some trends do come back around.
