SAN FRANCISCO – When companies such as Adobe, AOL, Eye-Fi, JPMorgan Chase, Sun Telelogic and even Google want a certain something in their Web applications, they go to SitePen, a Web application development shop that does a little support, training and consulting as well.

The reason these companies come to SitePen? The company has an all-star team of experts in AJAX (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML), DHTML and Web 2.0 technologies. The company is a virtual who’s who of AJAX stars, with CEO Dylan Schiemann and Alex Russell, SitePen’s director of R&D, as co-creators of the popular Dojo Toolkit, an AJAX development library.

SitePen also features Joe Walker, creator of Direct Web Remoting, also known as DWR—a Java-based library for AJAX development—and Kevin Dangoor, the creator of TurboGears, a Python-based Web application framework. And that’s just a short list of the Web 2.0 name brands employed at the company.
