Presenting at the Phoenix Symphony Hall on June 27th

Filed under: Uncategorized — Anthony Park @ 9:05 pm

For the last six months, I have been working with two other individuals to develop a framework for comparing web application technology platforms. The purpose of the framework is to provide a concrete, objective assessment of current web application technology platforms. The framework is also customizable, so that a company or individual can change the input parameters and select a technology that is right for their needs. As part of the framework development process, we evaluated seven different web application technology platforms:

  • ColdFusion
  • Java (Struts/Hibernate)
  • Perl (CGI)
  • PHP (Cake)
  • Python (Django)
  • Ruby (Rails)

We performed an extensive review of these languages, and even built the same two web applications in every language to collect data and compare the platforms. We recently completed our research and are ready to share what we have learned.

This Wednesday (06/27), there is a huge Arizona .NET User Group “Uber Meeting” being held at the Phoenix Symphony Hall. Myself, Ed Buksoki, and Todd Ellermann have been invited to provide a 30 minute presentation at this event about our research and findings. Scott Guthrie and Stefan Schackow are the main headliners, and will be presenting about Microsoft Silverlight and ASP.NET.

If you’re in the Phoenix area, this is an event you will not want to miss.

  1. The user group meeting looked really cool! I wanted to fly down and catch it but I realized that I missed it by a day. Plus, it was a Wednesday and therefore a work day. Also, my wife is 39 weeks pregnant and she would be really nervous with me skipping town so close to the big date.

    I found the topic of your master’s thesis very intriguing. You are absolutely right, technology choices have very, very little to do with practical application of each of the frameworks. I have been having this conversation with different companies for some time now.

    Do you plan on posting your master’s thesis here or at least a short abstract, overview, and summary?
