  • Lars Rasmussen
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 3579)


Lars designed and built the original prototype of Google Maps, which launched this January as a Google Labs experiment. He will discuss why his team chose a javascript-heavy approach, the challenges of doing so, and how browsers might develop in the future to better support rich web applications such as Google Maps.
