Semantic Web Syndication Web Web Services XML

WWW2007 Developers’ Track

We’ve announced the program for this years’ Developers’ Track, and I’m very excited about the lineup.

For example, Ryan Boyd from Google will be presenting about GData right before Pasha Sadri talks about Yahoo! Pipes. These are two cutting-edge uses of feeds, and with a little luck we might even be able to get them to field some joint questions in the middle.

Also on the topic of feed syndication, Elias Torres is scheduled to talk about Apache Abdera in a session on Next-Generation Web Servers, along with two approaches to integrating the Semantic Web in at the server level.

We’ve also got Peter Coffee talking about the programming the Web platform, a presentation about the httperf load-testing tool (which has had a lot of behind-the-scenes activity recently), and what look to be a very interesting presentation from Duncan Cragg.

These are just a few examples; see the full schedule for lots more. Thanks to everyone who submitted, along with the entire program committee for their work.
