How hard is AJAX to learn?
Can anybody program in it properly?
I am looking for basically an ajax ssh portal, I can see one but it is all japaneese, which I dont understand the documentation for..
As far as I am aware AJAX itself is not a single programming language or a single technology, but a group name or as wikipedia calls it a technique of web development.
and learn the equivalents on the server side
Nothing really new about the server side, if you have written the server side code for a simple form, you probably know enough.
AJAX has become a meaningless buzzword that attracts venture capitalists. That's it.
It is handy in the fact it does not time out..
trying to explain "why ajax"
asynchronous - ok, we want the user to be able to click the ads which loading.
XML was the buzzword of the last few years. using it again makes us look cool.
I'm against the whole concept of abusing an originally stateless data-fetching protocol for interactive UIs, but that's just me. And a few more people.
