RIA-related talks and companies at Web 2.0 Expo

I'm going to be heading down to Web 2.0 Expo tomorrow and in looking at the schedule I'm really excited about the presence and sponsorships of several important RIA companies.

I'm going to be heading down to Web 2.0 Expo tomorrow and in looking at the schedule I'm really excited about the presence and sponsorships of several important RIA companies. I'll first start with the talks you should be keeping an eye on and then go down the list of sponsor's booths that will be worth checking out.

Tuesday, April 22

Wednesday, April 23

Thursday, April 24

Friday, April 25

And looking at the sponsor list there are quite a few RIA companies sponsoring - a good sign for the space.

  • Microsoft - Hopefully lots of Silverlight stuff in conjunction with the Mesh
  • Adobe - I know we'll be doing demos and having partners come to show off applications in the booth.
  • Cynergy - One of the top RIA firms doing both Silverlight and Flex work
  • AOL - My hunch is that this is mostly search or social stuff but they've been doing great things with Flex/AIR and acquired Yourminis, one of my favorite Flash companies of all time.
  • Coghead - A company doing some cool Flex stuff.
  • effectiveUI - Another great RIA firm.
  • Curl - Doing lots of interesting RIA platform-building
  • Octopz - A company I've only come across a few times but they seem to be using some Flash/Flex.
  • Intuit - Just announced a developer platform where people can build Flex apps on top of QuickBase.

Did I miss anyone? I know there will be quite a few startups there so hopefully we get a nice mix of everything.

Update: Added Intuit
