My joint presentation w/ IBM jStart is now up

Earlier this month, I co-presented at an IBM web conference on the subject, “Mashup patterns for your business”. This talk was interesting because it included frequent demos of IBM’s Mashup Center product in addition to my regular blathering about “the patterns”. The talk just came online here.

Clearly, IBM brings a level of credibility to the mashup arena, not just because of this most recent tooling but also their groundbreaking QEDwiki work over at alphaWorks. It’s interesting to see how they have moved to commercialize the mashup space.

This presentation was one of several I have given along with the firms that contributed case studies to Mashup Patterns (for example, this one from JackBe). While some mashup products have a degree of functional overlap, they also have their unique strengths. You’ll have to judge each based on your specific use cases but I hope that doing these talks brings some of these facets to light.

I had a great time working with John Gerken both on IBM’s contributions to the book and on this demo. I hope you’ll find it worth the time to watch.
