When discussing "Web2.0" I've heard people looking for the value justification once they've moved past the so-called hype-cycle. Well, a last minute invite dropped into my in-box today (should REALLY have been notified via an RSS/ATOM feed, but I'm just being picky!) offering a free webinar by the well known "Dr Dobb's journal" - in conjunction with IBM - on this very subject.
Broadcast Date: Wednesday, September 24, 2008
Time: 12:00 pm PT / 3:00 pm ET / 19:00 GMT
Duration: One hour
More details and (*free*) registration available here. I can, however, reveal that speakers and topics include mashups, tools and the community based, Project Zero.
A key line for me was discussing re-use and the value that brings to the business,
"...we will discuss how IT teams can address business problems by pulling both internal and external web assets together and remix them in the form of enterprise mashups without writing new code."
