Advanced Ajax Development
Live Instructor-Led Classroom Training

This 3-day, hands-on advanced workshop will give the attendee the chance to develop the skills needed to develop feature-rich web applications that simulate the current experience of the desktop application user. Building on the attendee's knowledge of JavaScript and HTML, this workshop moves quickly into dissection of the DOM (document object model) and asynchronous JavaScript methods that form the heart of the AJAX development framework. Using extensive in-class, and hands-on examples, exercises – and a workshop project – attendees will gain valuable knowledge and experience in how and why AJAX is becoming one of the fastest growing web application development solutions today.

Attendees will learn from lecture, demos, and hands-on exercises the details and intricacies of the DOM that opens every web page element to the control and manipulation of the developer. They will learn how to utilize the power of the desktop platform to perform operations that would normally require a round-trip to the web server, and how to deal with some of the issues that asynchronous operations bring to the web development environment. Attendees should leave this workshop with the knowledge and understanding of how to immediately put AJAX to work in their everyday application development situations.

Who Should Attend

This workshop will be very beneficial to web programmers, web site designers, content managers, programmers, software engineers, and those that manage such personnel and projects.


Experience with web site development using HTML, dynamic HTML, and XML, and 1 year coding experience in JavaScript or VBScript with JavaScript is preferable.
