Ajax Patterns and Best Practices — Free Chapter Preview

Ajax Patterns and Best Practices

I’ve been meaning to write about this Ajax book (Ajax Patterns and Best Practices – by Christian Gross) for a while now. It’s gotten some really great reviews at Amazon.com, including this one by Jason A. Salas:

I very much enjoyed reading this book and got a lot out of it. To date, I’ve read about four of the major Ajax titles from various publishers, and this is the best of them so far. Christian Gross uses a very friendly voice and makes tacking the technical concepts behind modern-day web programming with Ajax – often a difficult task to simplify by the writing community – very easy to grasp.

Here’s a little more about Ajax Patterns and Best Practices from the publisher (Apress Inc.):

This book addresses the server side with the REST protocol. REST and Ajax blend elegantly together, but REST can also be used alone, with just a computer-to-computer solution. Like Ajax, REST can be used with today’s existing technologies. Millions of client computers are now Ajax-ready, and millions of servers are REST-ready.

This is an ideal book whether or not you have already created an Ajax application. Because the book outlines various patterns and best practices, you can quickly check and verify that you’re building an efficient Ajax application.

You can download a Free Chapter Preview (Ch. 03 – Content Chunking Pattern) from the publisher’s site. (PDF format)

The author has also made available the source code used throughout the book. (probably more useful when you own the book, though :) )
