Category: Book Reviews, Books

Ajax Books!

Our friends over at Relevance, Justin Gehtland and Stuart Halloway, have undertaken the task of reviewing various Ajax-related books with the goal of producing a definitive list of recommended resources for Ajax developers. (Something tells me Justin won’t be giving Pragmatic Ajax a negative review.) Check out the current reviews and check back for more reviews in the coming days:

  1. Relevance Reviews #1: The JavaScript Anthology
  2. Relevance Reviews #2: Ajax Hacks
  3. Relevance Review #3: Foundations of Ajax
  4. Relevance Review #4: Head Rush Ajax

These look like great books.
As far as books on new technologies, I’m often hesitant to buy books on subjects like Search Engine Marketing, because the rules of the game are contantly changing. However, AJAX is different. At least for now:-)

that was pretty funny Shimon. AJAX has been around for a long time though, although only getting much attention from developers recently. I must admit that I had never heard of the asynchronous javascript technique before the much applauded AJAX name was being uttered by every sort of self-respecting web developer. it makes me wonder what other technologies we as web developers are overlooking.

Ajax isn’t the only thing driving a professionalization of Javascript development. There are quite a number of interesting tools embedding Javascript. It’s a sort of Javascript Hackers Dilemna: what to do when your rip-and-run coding style runs into higher design and development expectations. How do you retool?

It is so strange that you put Ajax in Action aside.

Comment by turing — April 14, 2006

turing: Ugh! This is a third-party link, man. Bug them if you think the order they’re reading Ajax books is strange. ;-) I do know, from reading the comments on their site, that Ajax in Action is on their list.

Comment by John Garrison — January 28, 2007

Here you go: AJAX, is a web development technique used for creating interactive web applications. The intent is to make web pages feel more responsive by exchanging small amounts of data with the server behind the scenes, so that the entire web page does not have to be reloaded each time the user requests a change. This is intended to increase the web page’s interactivity, speed, functionality, and usability.
