We keep hearing about ajax but what is it...?
Ajax is not a technology in itself, its a collection of technologies to create interactive web applications using a combination of (as per wikipedia)
* XHTML (or HTML) and CSS for marking up and styling information. (XML is commonly used, although any format will work, including preformatted HTML, plain text, JSON and even EBML).
* The XMLHttpRequest object to exchange data asynchronously with the web server. In some Ajax frameworks and in some situations, an IFrame object is used instead of the XMLHttpRequest object to exchange data with the web server.
So when someone recently asked me if i had programmed in ajax i said no. But it doesnt seem that difficult after all. Lemme get back to college i think i am gonna make something in ajax:)
