In continuation to the first post, Joshua Eichorn — has posted the second part of the series of “Adding AJAX to a website”.
I have a lot more change’s i’d like to make to webthumb so the last article (Adding AJAX to a website step by step) is now the start of the series. In this article will be taking front page of webthumb and making it live. The the stats and recent thumbnails will update in real time, making for a nice slick presentation.
I hope to release and article for each improvement I make to webthumb, giving everyone idea of whats involved in AJAXing a real website. But a series of articles won’t cover everything you want to know about AJAX. If your interested in learning more you should take a look at my book, Understanding AJAX (should be shipping september 1st), it covers everything from basic AJAX implementations to usability and debugging.
Here is the list of the topics covere there:
Getting realtime data with AJAX
Exporting the PHP Class
Polling with HTML_AJAX
Updating contents on new data
