AJAX News and Tutorials

By hagrin - Posted on 05 August 2006

If you don't get your fill of AJAX news, tutorials and concerns over at Digg and Slashdot, I now bring you AjaxImpact. AjaxImpact is your one stop shop for everything AJAX although I believe it's missing a few APIs that have been developed by the community which could be useful. However, with a centralized database of articles, tutorials and news, you are sure to find everything you are looking for here when it comes to web development with AJAX.

AJAX Tutorials

By hagrin - Posted on 05 August 2006

Max Kiesler has compiled a pretty good list of AJAX tutorials that exist on the web that go beyond just giving readers a code snippet. If you're looking to implement some AJAX on your web pages (I know that I may at some point once I figure out the SEO concerns of an AJAX blog/site), these tutorials are a great place to start.

Advanced AJAX Techniques Part 3

By hagrin - Posted on 05 August 2006

IBM released the third part in their AJAX series that covers the more advanced techniques involved with creating AJAX applications including error handling and request handling so that AJAX can be integrated successfully into the corporate environment. Many of the AJAX applications currently available do not scale properly and become very slow and bogged down once demand gets too high. In addition, just like any Web scripting/programming language, security and error handling (data manipulation) needs to be completed with efficiency and accuracy levels approaching over 99% to ensure the programmers and IT managers keep their jobs. The first two parts of this series were excellent and Part 3 does not disappoint.

Yahoo!, which has constantly provided innovation to the masses, released their Yahoo! Interface Library which can be described as "a set of utilities and controls, written in JavaScript, for building richly interactive web applications using techniques such as DOM scripting, HTML and AJAX". Yahoo!, by providing these tools, should allow web developers to build standardized AJAX applications that can be more easily maintained and scaled for large use scenarios. I will definitely be looking into seeing the full utility of these libraries and putting them into action.

Information Week has an article on the major Internet players coming together to develop an Open AJAX standard for developers. Spearheaded by the likes of Google and IBM, this open standard will be incorporated into open source IDEs such as Eclipse which should provide developers a more standardized way of writing Web 2.0 web pages. In addition, with this standardization, hopefully security issues will be addressed making AJAX a viable solution in the corporate arena. In addition, one of the

AJAX Security Concerns?

By hagrin - Posted on 05 August 2006

As a blogger, I try and use as many different sources to compile my news and information to give my readers the best content available on the Internet. However, one disturbing trend would be the quality of news coming from Google Alerts. For instance, I watch the term AJAX to see what news media outlets are running AJAX stories (not the soccer club). Today, there are quite a few news releases about AJAX security issues and performance related problems. Of course, with any "new" technology, I would assume that there would be security related concenrs, but after digging a little deeper, I found the real reason for these releases.

Mastering AJAX Part II

By hagrin - Posted on 05 August 2006

IBM has released their second part of their "Mastering AJAX" articles. This article talks extensively about the XMLHttpRequest object and the different uses of this object when writing AJAX based web pages. The tutorial also covers the development issues faced by designers when programming for all browser *cough* Internet Explorer *cough*. Definitely take a look at the article if you plan on using AJAX in the future.

AJAX for Mobile Devices

By hagrin - Posted on 05 August 2006

The Open Gardens Blog (yeah, who?) has a very interesting piece on AJAX implementations on mobile devices such as cell phones. Most web developers don't even put mobile development in their mind and a lot of these newer Web 2.0 websites are not mobile device capable.

However, as the article states, Opera has made AJAX advancements possible on mobile devices by offering a SDK to developers through the Opera Platform page.

IBM Teaches AJAX

By hagrin - Posted on 05 August 2006

IBM released an article on AJAX basics and how someone unfamiliar with AJAX (the favorite web design fad right now) can learn to code fluid websites. IBM articles are generally very well written and easy to understand so if you want to take a stab at AJAX, here is your chance.

Online Office Suite

By hagrin - Posted on 05 August 2006

While many wait for gOffice, Google's online office suite, ThinkFree Office Online already has an amazingly functional and fast online office suite written using Java (I'm pretty sure there is little Web 2.0 or AJAX here, mainly Java applets). I use this site personally to keep track of my workout stats until I get my own web based workout tracker up and running. Check it out and believe in the power of online office computing.
