NEW YORK -- It's not every day that you see a Microsoft employee demonstrating Microsoft software running natively on Linux. Yet that's exactly what happened at AJAXWorld here, as Brad Abrams, group program manager at Microsoft for ASP.NET AJAX (codenamed Atlas) did today.
(Note, as Patrick says, I do over generalize the Cathedral and Bazaar concept slightly to make a point... Thanks Patrick...)
Abrams brought along his Mac, to demonstrate that it all ran on a Mac just as easily - a nice touch for a Microsoft speaker.
He then demoed how ASP.NET AJAX also jives with Dojo
The Redmond, Wash.-based software giant announced its entree into the alliance at the AJAXWorld East conference in New York.
"We are looking forward to carrying forward what you can do with AJAX and are really open in an integrated way," said Brad Abrams,
Oh, and Joe Stagner got some well deserved credit for his excellent presentation at AjaxWorld last night... If you ever get a chance to hear this guy speak you should... He is excellent...
"MS AJAX combines rich, cross browser client side libraries with ASP.NET's popular server side development NT technology to offer an ideal developers toolbox for developing the next generation of Web Applications," said Stagner
