Web 3.0 And The Features

For those who are in the dark, the web has numbered versions. Not too many people know this truth but, a few years back, a guy named Dale Dougherty envisioned Web 2.0. This is despite the fact that the whole world was in chaos because of the crash of the dot-com. People were losing hope that the Internet would ever rise again but Dougherty never gave up. The Web 2.0 Conference in 2005 gave way to the birth of the World Wide Web.

Web 2.0 has come to depict practically each site, technology, or service which are promoting collaboration and sharing even down to the Internet’s roots. Blogging, tags, wikis, RSS feeds, Flickr, del.icio.us, MySpace, and YouTube were the first fruits. The world has been a witness to the evolution of the Web from its 1.0 phase to Web 2.0. Looking at the great developments on the web’s history, people are wondering what is in store for those who would be able to witness the coming of Web 3.0.

Net technologies are constantly evolving: in the minds of geniuses in universities, in prime corporations, and many other great minds out there. Most of the online population coin the term Semantic web to Web 3.0. This is somehow in connection to Tim Berners-Lee’s invention of the World Wide Web.

Basically, Web 3.0 is a location where web pages are read by machines just like humans read them. This is also a place where search engines abound. Looking at it on a layman’s perspective, it simply means a single database for the whole world (well, this is not quite simple when you begin to fathom the work it’s going to take to make this happen).

Some are skeptical about the birth of this modern Internet idea of Berners-Lee in 2001. He began with an idea where the Semantic Web can have agents that would take care of people’s schedules (even down to the setting of appointments). Semantic web agents can be programmed to do just about anything else (processing of research papers or even booking vacations). All it takes for these agents to become a reality, according to its author, is for the web to be re-annotated.

Nowadays, Web 3.0 is more than just a dream. Official standards which describe the metadata that would make information machine readable are now practically everywhere—they are already in place in RDF (Recourse Description Framework), OWL (Web Ontology Language), there is even a development platform in HP called Jena and structures are to be found in the Spatial database tool of Oracle.

The technology of Web 3.0 is evident in Google Gears which allows users to create web applications even when offline. The Adobe Flash player lets application developers have some access to the microphone and webcam. Pretty soon, it would be possible to drag then drop files from the desktop all the way to a web browser.

More awesome features await those who would want to experience Web 3.0: spectacular graphics, hi-def video and audio, seamless animations, and 3D. The present day’s generations of web front-end engineers are very lucky to have Web 3.0. Fragmentation which could result when technologies skyrocket could be moderated with the use of JavaScript toolkits.

These could very well be the vision that Berners-Lee saw. It’s more than just storing and sharing information now—the Internet could do far more complex actions that would make Web 1.0 and Web 2.0 seem ‘Neanderthal’ in comparison.

Drupal and Flex

Its a dual combo package. Drupal the Best CMS and Flex one of the best stable SDK for creating Rich internet Application can be combined to form a powerful and secured web solutions.

Flex :

Flex is a SDK for creating Rich Internet Application. RIA is the base for next generation websites. Everyone wants their websites to be more attractive and pleaseant for readers to read through contents. Many websites want their websites images to be very secured. All these can be done using FLEX SDK. The good thing is that Adobe has released this SDK for Free.

Flex Builder :

Flex builder is an IDE ( integrated Development Environment ) for using Flex. Flex is of coding type. You have to manually write the code and then manually compile them. Flex builder is a tool for using Flex SDK in a easiest possible manner. Flex builder has got all its important functions pre coded. just you need to drag and drop components.

Drupal :

Best CMS. What else to say. i have been talking about drupal in all my postings. 🙂

Combining the power of drupal and flex is the real challenge. one of the most advantageous fact about Drupal  Core is that it has been designed to provide external services. Drupal calls it as node services, taxanomy based services… etc. Once you activate these services these can be retrived and displayed in Flex.

The thing is that adobe uses this technology to show its flex showcase. You can access it through www.flex.org/showcase Adobe uses Drupal at the backend and Flex at front end. Drupal provides integraty, security, compaitability,flexibility and Flex provides RIA ( rich Internet Application ).

Overall your site looks different from rest of those billions of websites.

Its Different.

Finally it come up !!!

I have seen often people are asking for flex training center in india. When I met priyank at Mumbai flex user group meeting, he told that NIIT is working on this curriculum. Since our talk with him nothing had came.

Three to four (6th Dec 2007) days back I was reading “Times of India” at home. Suddenly I got excited by seeing one advertisement of NIIT institute about new courses for “rich internet application”. They will cover Flash CS3.0, Flex, Dreamwewer and coldfusion during this cource. I really don’t know insight of this course. Click on below image for more information.

I think this initiative help fresher to pickup flex and flash technology very fast. Even this will help to blow RIA technology.

For more information mail edgeineers@niit.com and rush NIIT telephone lines (1800 180 8448).
