[prMac.com] Montreal, QC - The WebObjects Community Association, Box Office Tickets, and MacTI are delighted to announce WOWODC West 2009, the annual conference dedicated to Apple's WebObjects Web development framework. WebObjects is a powerful, elegant, and proven web application framework that doesn't trade agility for scalability, or elegance for capability. Think of WebObjects as Cocoa and CoreData for the web.
This two day event will be held on June 6th and 7th, right before WWDC, at the beautiful Hotel Whitcomb in San Francisco. Breakfast, lunch, and breaks (snacks, coffee, etc.) will be served each day. The sessions will be recorded and provided to attendees. Non-attendees may purchase the recordings. Join us for two days of learning and discussion hosted by the WebObjects community's leading experts.

* Project Wonder in depth -
Project Wonder extends the core WebObjects frameworks and adds many Web 2.0 features.

* AJAX -
No longer just a household cleanser, this buzzword has the potential to make clients, users, and the boss, very happy. Learn how easy it is to "ajaxify" apps.
