the ajax papers

I'll try to keep the self promotion of my new blog on to a dull roar on Telerik Watch, but in its infancy I want to make sure everyone has a chance to add it to their feed readers. Today I posted the first of a multi-part series on Ajax that will cover everything from Ajax basics to advanced Ajax optimization techniques. Today's installment gets you started with the basics, covering in detail how Ajax works so that you know what radAjax and ASP.NET AJAX are doing auto-magically for you.

The blog post is available online on and it is also downloadable as a PDF. The PDF version allows more formatting control, so if you have trouble reading the online version be sure the check out the PDF. Even if you think you know everything about Ajax basics, you'll want to give this article a read as it is spiced with Ajax trivia throughout. Do you know what the JavaScript "===" compare operator means? Do you know which version of MSXML is most widely distributed? Guess you'll have to read the article to find out.

Cool article.

I've been using Ajax as a 'black box' for a while so it's nice to get a peek under the hood. 8-)

I look forward to the next installment.
