AJAX and other technologies for building rich Internet applications (RIAs) are quickly becoming one of the most in-demand skill sets for Web developers, designers and professionals. This session offers an in-depth, practical tour of the latest AJAX frameworks — including their features, strengths and weaknesses — to help today's Web professionals better understand how to choose and then use one of the frameworks. The session also provides a tour of the AJAX design patterns' emerging story, as well as the most popular design elements in AJAX applications today. Using Christopher Alexander's "design patterns" metaphor — for example, "common, recurring problems" — you will examine display manipulation, Web remoting, dynamic behavior, Web services and performance optimization.
