I'm currently cooking up two presentations about Ajax and JSF.  Once they're fully baked, I'm taking them on the road!  Of course, while on the road I'll be promoting my first book, JavaServer Faces: The Complete Reference.  This book can be referenced from Here are the stops on my fall 2006 tour.

At each of these engagements I'll be presenting one or two of the following two talks.

Enterprise Grade AJAX with JSF

This presentation will demonstrate how JSF and AJAX are perfect together. We begin with an insight into the design heritage of JSF, and how that heritage puts JSF in good stead to be productive in the AJAX world. Building on that foundation we dive into the code from the page author and component developer's perspective. We close with a look to the future of JSF.

Scripting JSF

The benefits of scripting languages for web development are well known. Python, Ruby, Perl, and other languages came to prominence largely due to their suitability for web development. With the inclusion of JSR 223 in the Java platform, Scripting will be fully supported. This presentation will present some trends for using Scripting to develop applications for Java EE.

I hope to meet lots of people and learn how you all are using JSF. If you're not using JSF, maybe I can find out why so we can fix it.
