Book Overview: AJAX is one of the hottest technologies in web development today. Mixing several widely used techniques (JavaScript, XML and server-side scripting), AJAX provides a user experience much improved over the traditional web page interface. In particular, it removes the need for a user to wait for a page to refresh before seeing the results of his or her actions, allowing the building of website interfaces that are much more reminiscent of those of desktop applications. Writing AJAX applications is not especially complex or technically challenging, but the architecture and operation of such applications is unfamiliar to the many web designers and programmers who have experience of building web applications using the more usual architectures. Sams Teach Yourself AJAX in 10 Minutes covers the concepts, architectures, and techniques employed in using AJAX, introducing AJAX and explaining how it may be used to solve realistic user interface problems. This allows the reader to immediately begin building web applications, and equipping the reader with the platform from which to explore more advanced aspects of AJAX.
