Travel with us as we migrate one of our strategic business applications from Windows Desktop to the Web.  During this journey, we’ve decided to share our story as it happens.  Each week we will post our experiences (the good and the bad) on our blog: and you can follow us on Twitter:  @DesktoptoWeb. We will detail the technologies we’ve chosen and why we chose them.   Our postings will likely range from what ORM we decide to use, to our struggles with JavaScript OO patterns. Additionally, like all technology groups, we will probably have some disagreements and we hope to be able to share them for your benefit.

We’re also looking forward to sharing our triumphs and challenges face-to-face.  Once each quarter we will schedule a get-together in the Boston area.  During these get-togethers, one of our developers will present on a topic of their choosing.  After the presentation, we will have a roundtable discussion to talk about the topic.  Our goal is to share our experience as well as draw on the experiences of other people.

This journey is scheduled to take us about 2 years.  In that time we hope to provide some useful learning experiences as we travel down this road.

Here are some of the presentations topics we plan to cover:

  • Determining what technologies and tools to use
  • Design patterns for the web
  • RESTFUL services
  • Security
  • Hosting challenges
  • And more…

We hope you'll join us!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
