Ajax Design Patterns shows you bestpractices that can dramatically improve your web development projects.It investigates how others have successfully dealt with conflictingdesign principles in the past and then relays that informationdirectly to you.
The patterns outlined in the book fall into fourcategories:
Ajax Design Patterns will also get you upto speed with core Ajax technologies, such as XMLHttpRequest, the DOM, and JSON.Technical discussions are followed by code examples so you can see foryourself just what is-and isn't-possible with Ajax. This handyreference will help you to produce high-quality Ajax architectures,streamline web application performance, and improve the userexperience.

"Michael Mahemoff's Ajax Design Patternsis a truly comprehensive compendium of webapplication design expertise, centred around but not limited to Ajaxtechniques. Polished nuggets of design wisdom are supportedby tutorials and real-world code examples resulting in a book thatserves not only as an intermediate to expert handbook but also as anextensive reference for building rich interactive web applications."
—Brent Ashley, remote scripting pioneer

Are you a developer, designer and manager who wants to know how Ajax is being used in the real world? If you are, then this book is for you. Author Michael Mahemoff, has done an outstanding job of writing a 2nd edition of a book that shows you what¿s possible and what¿s not with Ajax, and how Ajax is being used in the real world. Michael, begins with a prelude to the patterns. Then, the author outlines the building blocks at the heart of any Ajax application. Next, he focuses on the technical qualities of software, in particular maintainability, robustness, and performance. The author also focuses on the usability of Ajax applications. Finally, he discusses why development patterns are not things in the same sense as the patterns in previous patterns, but processes you can use to aid development. Because of the reference-like nature of the patterns, this most excellent book is accessible to people from different backgrounds. More importantly, this book doesn¿t assume you know any particular server-side environment.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
