Ajax Summit: Brent Ashley’s Presentation

Category: Ajax

Brent Ashley is known for Remote Scripting Resources at, and is an independant consultant. He also has a bunch of fun R&D side projects such as:

Brent jumps into the Remote Scripting world of Microsoft, and talks about how this stuff was done a long, long time ago (1998!) :)

So it is thanks to Sun sueing Microsoft that we have XHR!

Brent finishes up talking about other interesting libraries along the way:

Well geez guys… why didn’t you invite me to the Summit?! Say hey to Brent for me :)

It’s funny to see the hype of Ajax hit now when we were doing this stuff years and years ago.
