I’ve been a bit of the Ajax poster boy lately. Two pieces that I wrote for library audiences have just been published.
Both articles fall into the “introductory” mode, although the CIL article walks you through a proof of concept Ajax page update script (mentioned in an earlier post…). I want to be clear: I’m not an Ajax evangelist. I find the suite of technologies that make Ajax go intriguing and the improvements that the Ajax framework can make to some library applications are worth learning about and applying. I tried to point out the good and the bad. Although, it is a four letter word…
I did want to mention a couple of books that were really helpful in getting me up to speed with the Ajax method.
