Interview with Jared White of the XAJAX Project

Category: Interview, Programming, Toolkit

The Ajax Magazine site has posted their interview with the project lead for the XAJAX project – Jared White.

XAJAX is one of the very interesting AJAX implementations for PHP, easy as the project’s slogan “The easiest way to develop asynchronous Ajax applications with PHP”. Few days ago there was a release 0.2.4 and a flash about a future version coming 0.5, so I contacted Jared one of the XAJAX project leads to talk about web 2.0, XAJAX and other projects he’s working on.

They talk first about White and some of his other interests (including graphic design and music) as well as some of the other projects that he’s associated with. From there, it all gets technical – the interviewer asks White about his personal favorites in the Web 2.0 world and trends that he sees as interesting for these applications. Of course, there is always the other side of the coin to consider, so they talk a bit about his dislikes for Web 2.0 as well.

The focus then shifts to the XAJAX project – how it started, why he started it, and some of the others that are working with him. They get into the details of the functionality of the framework and some of the things that are to come for the project’s development.

There’s also a brief mention of the Willowgarden project, an off-shoot that White is just developing to provide the “other side of things”, a powerful PHP5 framework to make it quick and easy to develop server-side applications.

Hi, Nice site with good functionality. Iliked the prompt idea of related products. I think it works better than list of related products listed there as it stimulates your mind like real salesmen selling in shop!! (Its like do you want a bang with laptop which is on special offer0 ;o)

Anywhere we can customisable scripts?
