Today I have done a tongue-in-cheek presentation of AJAX to my colleagues, including the historic background, the technology and the buzzwords. It also includes some code samples, compatible with Firefox, showing how to implement a synchronous and an asynchronous connection with the XmlHttpRequest component.
I did the original presentation with Keynote, and all I can say is: WOW! This application is light years away from everything else. It took me longer to figure out what to do than to do it. Powerpoint is such a pain in the … that this was a welcome switch. I just exported it to PDF for sharing it with you.
You can download everything right here! Feel free to tell me what do you think in the comments below.
