Web technology tutorial: JavaScript libraries | lynda.com

As the web has matured, websites have become increasingly more diverse and complex, and these types of sites can require a lot more effort to build. To make life easier for web developers, various assembly technologies have been created that reduce a lot of the time and effort required when writing complex sites and applications, including JavaScript libraries. In this tutorial, check out how to use JavaScript libraries, collections of prewritten JavaScript code that make it easier to perform certain tasks using JavaScript.

Flooding of information on WWW makes it necessary to develop some strategic solution so that valuable knowledge can be extracted and easy accessible. In order to improve utilization of data and automate process of complex decision making there is a need to transform the syntactical web into a new format of semantics. Machines need additional semantic information that helps in understanding web documents. Semantic Web makes web content meaningful to computers and it intends to support machine-processing capabilities. Therefore, support in the exchange of data, information, and knowledge is becoming the key issue in computer technology. This data can be transferred and accessed via different syntax-oriented formats which improve human understanding, processing capabilities and decision making possibilities with the data. In order to improve utilization of data and automate process of complex decision making there is a need to transform the syntactical web into a new format of semantics. The main goal of the Semantic Web (SW) is to improve the processes of knowledge representation (KR) and information retrieval (IR) on the Web.
To facilitate this process, RDF and OWL have been developed as the basic building blocks for the Semantic Web.

Choosing your Realtime Web App Tech Stack – Phil Leggetter

Session from http://futureofwebapps.com/london-2013/

"We all know the benefits of adding realtime interactive functionality to our web apps, right? But with so many realtime web technologies available how do you know which ones to use in your new or existing web app? Phil will explain why adding realtime data and interactive functionality to your web app is beneficial (just in case you don't know). We'll then take a brief tour of the history of realtime web technologies in order to understand how we got where we are today before diving in to what realtime web solutions are available, and the key points you should consider, when building a web application on some of the most common technology stacks."
