The slides above are in Dutch but I'm pretty sure they won't be too difficult to understand ;)
Further discussion points raised by the moderator included:
- Flex and AJAX are identical
- Flex is sexier
- Flex is cross browser
- AJAX is a team rather than a single company
- Flex = Ajax < Silverlight
Where both Peter-Paul and myself seemed to converge was the last question on Silverlight where we both had our concerns particularly about the way it is being marketed. I think we were pretty fair in our assessment though was pleased to have a little chat with Luc Van de Velde, Director Developer & Platform Group for Microsoft afterwards.
I would like to call for a RIA think tank to be set up to get a technology-agnostic look at the challenges we face and how to most effectively move forward. Nobody benefits from a "browser war" between rich client technologies. Anyone interested to help kick start this project feel free to leave a comment or contact me directly!
