Developing Web Applications with Ajax
Live Instructor-Led Classroom Training
This 2-day hands-on workshop will help the attendee to understand and experience the capabilities and benefits of AJAX in the development of leading-edge web sites and services. Many companies have already incorporated AJAX into their commercial web offerings: Google Earth, backpackit, and Cold Fusion. AJAX programming can improve web site development without increasing the network and server overhead that most current forms of web site development incur. AJAX uses a combination of web technologies in a novel way to reduce the time to market and cost of development while addressing issues such as privacy and security. Microsoft originally introduced the AJAX concept in their Internet Explorer 5.5 with the XMLHttpRequest object where the browser engine decided what to do locally and what to forward on to the web server. This concept is the heart of AJAX. AJAX uses a combination of web technologies in a novel way to reduce the time to market and cost of development while addressing issues such as privacy and security.
Attendees will learn from lecture, demos, and hands-on exercises how to exploit the capabilities of an AJAX development environment without the overhead of learning a full-featured programming language such as C, C++, or Java. Using simple scripting techniques within HTML/DHTML packages, AJAX provides powerful control and capabilities without the complexity of CGI or server-side programming. The attendees will also complete an in-class project that will further expand AJAX development knowledge and skills development.
