CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Step-by-step guide reveals best practices for enhancing Web sites with Ajax A
step-by-step guide to enhancing Web sites with Ajax. Uses progressive
enhancement techniques to ensure graceful degradation (which makes sites usable
in all browsers). Shows readers how to write their own Ajax scripts instead of
relying on third-party libraries.
Web site designers love the idea of Ajax--of creating Web pages in which
information can be updated without refreshing the entire page. But for those
who aren't hard-core programmers, enhancing pages using Ajax can be a
challenge. Even more of a challenge is making sure those pages work for all
users. In Bulletproof Ajax, author Jeremy Keith demonstrates how developers
comfortable with CSS and (X)HTML can build Ajax functionality without
frameworks, using the ideas of graceful degradation and progressive enhancement
to ensure that the pages work for all users. Throughout this step-by-step
guide, his emphasis is on best practices with an approach to building Ajax
pages called Hijax, which improves flexibility and avoids worst-case scenarios.
