CeBIT Goes "100% Business"

CeBIT Goes

A change in director brings a change in direction for the show we love to hate-- CeBIT 2014 goes "100% business," dropping the consumer segment in favour of a purely B2B event.

“We aim to more strongly leverage CeBIT’s core strengths by means of targeted enhancements,” CeBIT managing board member Oliver Frese says. “The event is being placed on a ‘100% business’ track-– exactly in line with the wishes of our customers."

Deutsche Messe rattles statistics from CeBIT 2013 to explain the reasoning behind such a change of heart. Reportedly 82% of CeBIT 2013 attendees were trade visitors, 33% were top-level managers and 60% of visiting professionals have no plans to attend another 2013 IT event.

Thus CeBIT 2014 will drop the four-pillar approach of previous years to instead assign topics to eight self-explanatory "clusters"-- Enterprise Resource Planning & Data Analysis, Enterprise Content Management, Web & Mobile Solutions, IT Services, Security, Communication & Networks, Infrastructure & Data Centers, and Research & Innovations.

Budapest: JavaScript, the Conclave

There was no puff of white smoke, no final decisive election, But behind closed doors, in a conference in Budapest, key internet engineers discussed the failings and the future of JavaScript.  

Developers argue the demands once placed on languages like C/C++ and Java now shift to JavaScript,  exposing  limitations in performance and maintainability. The latest generation of JavaScript engines may deliver incredible performance gains, but to many these still aren’t enough when you look at how sites such as YouTube, Facebook, EA’ etc have to scale up.

Prezi, LogMeIn and Ustream organized a conference in Budapest to focus on how to scale JavaScript, MLOC.js. Engineers from Google, Facebook, Mozilla, Groupon and others gathered for a 3-day tete-a-tete to discuss how to work-around the limitations of JavaScript. Their work could change the way we write applications on the web. Read more...
