This month's topic: Rich Internet Clients: A moderated, but open discussion on what is the "right technology" for an internet application.

Bring your opinions, experience and personal bias and join in a lively discussion on a highly pertinent topic.

Topical questions include but are not limited to: Applications written using HTML, CSS and Java Script (DHTML) have some advantages but what requirements, if any, would sway a project towards -Flash, Applets or Java F/X? Is there significant differences between consumer versus business based applications that would cause cause a particular technology to be used? Are they days of Flash numbered or is the current trend towards pure DHTML doomed because of fragmentation in the browser market?

PJUG meetings start with some time to eat and socialize (pizza and beverages are provided), followed by the featured speaker, then Q&A, discussion, sometimes a drawing to give away swag. :)

Though we like knowing how many people to expect, you don't have to RSVP, on Upcoming or otherwise. Go ahead and just show up!

Many people also go for a drink and further discussion following the meeting, at a location determined ad hoc (lately, the Market Street Pub at 10th and Market: http://mcmenamins.com/index.php?loc=24 ).
