This class will introduce you to the suite of technologies that are used to create an Ajax web application. This is not, however, simply a catalog of Ajax libraries and tools: all topics covered are grounded in "Real World" usage. Learning in this class is designed to go above and beyond the "what" and "how" of Ajax. After completing this course, you will be well versed in the critical answers to "why" and "when", as they relate to the technical foundations of building dynamic web applications.
After completing this course students will:
Understand the relationship between the different protocols that comprise "Ajax"
Create asynchronous requests through the use of the XMLHttpRequest object
Learn best practices in "cross browser" coding
Develop proficiency with the DOM API in building dynamic GUIs
Become familiar with jQuery and its use in efficiently building Ajax applications
This class is designed for experienced web page developers looking to establish a foundation in the creation of dynamic web applications via Ajax.
