I think it should be 30/70 also design/dev i think most of the people involved are more interested in the technology, but i could be off.

Ben, glad to hear it. Since I wasn't there, I couldn't have known that. Hopefully I can go to this year's (I live in Boston) and get an opportunity to hear some good talks. As for Ajax == DHTML, fine, whatever, seems like despite what was declared at last year's conference, everyone loves to debate this terminology. I didn't mean to bring up semantics but rather support that it would be good to see the design stuff, whatever you want to call it.

IMO, the separation between design and development as regards web stuff is arbitrary and artificial. Design is not something that should be slapped on late in the game, especially where there's functionality involved -- we're not talking about magazine spreads here. It's integral to the process. So, I say, pump up the design.

[...] Should there be designer content at the Ajax Experience conference? Chime in! [...]

I just think about the recent comments on PHPClasses and... sure, one can be a great programmer but really need a helping hand with design stuff. And a lot of programmers end doing the design anyway... So, yes, go ahead. More designer content

Lindesy's almost right. 32.7% is the right proportion, definitely, definitely...

I'd vote for 30% - even for developers who don't focus on traditional design, we all have to do a bit of both, and it would be great to go and get schooled on the latest and greatest techniques.

Erik: That's one of the points we made at last year's show -- Ajax == DHTML, get over it. We had a lot of "DHTML" content.

Big ups on design -- definitely shoot for at least 30-40% discussion of that. For that matter, my ideal conference wouldn't focus exclusively on the transport mechanisms (or techniques employing them) themselves, but also on general DHTML techniques that have nothing to do with Ajax per se. IMHO.

User experience and design is as important to Ajax as the frameworks and tools. Also, if only 6% of the attendees consider them self designers, then the more they learn about design the better.

As a developer, I think user experience is essential, so I'd like to see more of that at the conference.

Hey Ned, I'm using FF on the Mac; works fine. What's your platform? Ben

Well, Ajax or least it should work as it should! Now, rating posts results in an error...both IE and FF. ..."It's Ajax not AJAX, stupid!"... Well, it's not working at matter how you spell it...STUPID!

This is my official vote for more user experience/usability content. As was said above, Ajax gives developers plenty of opportunity to do things poorly, let's get some of these problems out of the way before they get to far out of control.

In developing Ajax applications, it is very important to take the user experience into consideration. There is ample opportunity for people to do things poorly.

By: Chris

There should definitely be some usability content -- the fact that only 6% were designers shows that some focus on design would be extremely useful for attendees, especially since they themselves are doing the design work.
