Ajax Programming With Passion: Free Online Course

Category: Workshop

Sang Shin is offering a free ten-week course on Ajax, starting in a couple of weeks time. It will cover fundamental technologies and some of the popular libraries and frameworks out there. Looking at the curriculum, there’s a Java focus on the server-side – DWR, Wicket, JMaki, JSF, and GWT all feature. Sang’s a Sun employee, but runs these courses in his spare time.

A free 10-week “AJAX Programming” online course is about to start from August 4th, 2006. This course is for anyone who wants to learn AJAX for the first time or increase their knowledge on AJAX. In this 10-week course, students learn basic concept of AJAX as well as how to use various AJAX frameworks and toolkits such as Dojo toolkit, jMaki, Google Web Toolkit, and AJAX-fied JavaServer Faces (JSF) components.

This course runs very much like a regular college course in which the students are expected to do weekly homeworks after studying the presentation material but it is free and can be taken online. There is also class group alias where students can ask/answer questions. The complete set of course contents (StarOffice slides with detailed speaker notes and flash demo files, hands-on labs, homework assignments, etc.) are available on the website of the course. The only thing you have to do in order to register for the course is sending an blank email to
