Topic: Bridging the Client and the Server - AJAX

Ajax is one of those hot buzz words that everyone is talking about, and many people are not sure if Ajax is for them. This talk is for developers who have a basic knowledge of JavaScript. The talk will take a low-level approach at the technology so they can obtain the basics before diving into the technology in great depth.

The talk focuses on the XMLHttpRequest object and shows basic examples. Then the flaws of this basic approach will be shown and how object-oriented JavaScript can solve these problems. This may be the first time some developers will hear that JavaScript can be an object- oriented language.

Basic examples will show developers how a simple script can change the way their users use their applications.

The talk also focuses on flaws, pet peeves, when to use Ajax, why you should use it, how to convince my boss, frameworks, and where to get information By the end of this talk, the members should be able to walk understanding how Ajax can make their user interface much more efficient—without all the hype.
