Rich UI webapps with TurboGears 2 and Dojo

I’ve just received notice that my proposed talk for PyCon 2008 has been accepted!

People who were at my PyCon 2006 “Effective Ajax with TurboGears” talk might remember that I talked about sprinkling Ajax throughout a webapp as appropriate. A lot has changed in the nearly two years since. We can now move a lot more presentation logic to the browser, and the server side becomes much more of a web services layer.

I’m going to focus on what the server side looks like (this is PyCon, after all!), using Dojo to easily implement the client side. I’m also going to talk about how you can integrate Comet (where the server sends messages back to the client) into a TurboGears 2 app.

The ideas will work in any web framework, and the code samples will also work with very little change in Pylons.

I’m looking forward to this talk, and I hope to see you there! (And don’t forget to say ‘hi’ if you’re at CodeMash next month!)

Update: Wow! Check out the PyCon 2008 list of talks. This will be my third PyCon, and I must say that that is the most impressive list of talks of the three.
