This post is intended to be the first of a series. I want to be clear about what it entails and its intended audience.
For the past several years I’ve been an architect in enterprise-level RIAs. This is a fancy way of saying I oversee the design and construction of apps that are web-based but have a lot of the same characteristics as desktop applications. Some of the applications I work on are in fact desktop applications but heavily communicate with the web. The line becomes very blurry, but the main point is–I deal with applications which in my world are quite different than what is often considered a “website” even though they both live within a browser.
