Professional JavaScript and Ajax Workshop

December 5th, 2007

I’ll do a one-day workshop on Professional JavaScript and Ajax in London on March 26, 2008. If you want the inside scoop in script.aculo.us 2.0 and the latest and greatest on Prototype, and you’re around be sure to attend!

Learn the secrets of giving your sites and web applications the rich interactivity they deserve. This exclusive workshop by Thomas Fuchs will provide real-world examples and practical knowledge to enable you to make the jump to using Ajax and JavaScript.

This workshop uses a pragmatic approach and focuses on how to put Ajax to full use in a variety of different situations. It will give you the necessary skills to make the transition from boring web forms to rich, responsive user interfaces. Thomas will show you what Ajax and JavaScript frameworks can do for you, how to manipulate a page with the Document Object Model, and where and when to utilise visual effects to make all this look good. Additionally, he’ll compare different techniques for data exchange with the backend, and how to choose what’s best in your particular situation.

I’m happy to work again with the great people at Carson Workshops!

Hope to see some of you there! Head over to the workshop website to learn more, and if you like, register!
