Zend Developer Zone:
"Building Your Own Ajax Web Applications" (Book Review)
Sep 29, 2006 @ 09:15:00

The Zend Developer Zone has posted a new book review of one of SitePoint's web development related titles - "Building Your Own AJAX Web Applications".

I'm way behind on my book reviews. I've got a stack that's still knee-high and I know that there are more on the way. So let's pop one off the stack and take a peek into it shall we? This time it's "Building Your Own AJAX Web Applications" by Matthew Eernisse and published by SitePoint.

He details the contents, including the Preface. The book gives:

  • an overview of Ajax
  • an inside look at the XMLHttpRequest object
  • the asynchronous nature of it
  • making POST requests
  • making applications compatible with screen readers
  • and a deeper look at what Ajax is and does
Of course, Cal explains them all in the post, giving a more complete look at each of the topics.
