"Smallest, Fastest, and Easiest-to-Use Dojo Release Ever" – Dojo 0.9

In 0.9, dojo.js can come from anywhere since it always includes the same modules

"After a complete re-think about the purpose and value of Dojo, and after months of grueling ground-up work on the part of the entire Dojo team, I’m happy, proud, and excited to announce that Dojo 0.9.0 is available," wrote AJAXWorld Conference & Expo 2007 West speaker Dylan Schiemann this week, co-creator of the Dojo Toolkit with Alex Russell.

"For those porting Dojo applications from previous version of the toolkit, you can refer to the Porting Guide for help on where APIs landed in the shuffle," noted Schiemann, adding: "In many cases, you’ll need less code overall to get the same thing done (or done better)."AOL is already hosting 0.9 in their CDN, Schiemann pointed out.

Dojo's approach to dojo.js in 0.9 is different than Dojo 0.4.x. In Dojo 0.4.x, dojo.js varied, depending on the type of build you downloaded. While this allowed a nice degree of customization, it ultimately made it hard to talk coherently about dojo.js, both in feature set and in file size.

Here is a quick rundown of 0.9 features:

    * unified look and feel for all widgets
    * ambitious a11y and i18n features in every Dijit widget
    * a mature CSS-driven theme system with multiple, high-quality themes
    * huge improvements in system performance
    * data-bound widgets
    * Declarations for lightweight widget writing
    * a new page parser that allows instances of any class, not just widgets
    * no magic

    * reduced API surface area (easier to remember and use)
    * dojo.query() always available, returns real arrays
    * from-scratch high-performance DnD system
    * Base (dojo.js) is 25K on the wire (gzipped)
    * dojo.data APIs finalized
    * new build system
    * new test harness for both CLI and browser use
    * dojo.behavior now marked stable and based on dojo.query
    * excellent animation APIs with Color animations in Base (always available)
    * all the features you’ve come to count on from Dojo (RPC, JSON-P, JSON, i18n, formatting utilities, etc.)

    * high quality implementations of previously experimental features:
    * gfx (portable 2D drawing)
    * data wires
    * offline
    * storage
    * cometd (Bayeux client)
    * etc.
    * dojox.gfx now includes Sliverlight support
    * many more features and improvements than there’s room for here

Schiemann's innovative AJAXWorld session in September is "Dojo on the iPhone" and the room is certain to be packed at he shows how developers can leverage the Dojo Toolkit for this latest innovation from Cupertino.

His session is just one of the twelve sessions in this year's inaugural iPhone track, one of the ten simultaneous tracks at the greatly expanded event.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations.

Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, shared examples from a wide range of industries – including en...

Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.
Business professionals no longer wonder if they'll migrate to the cloud; it's now a matter of when.

And when the cloud is combined with the power of cognitive computing, it drives innovation and transformation that achieves astounding competitive advantage.
Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
