AJAX, or Asynchronous JavaScript and XML, is an important new technology, part of what is sometimes called Web 2.0. It is a standards-based approach to building rich Internet applications that offer a highly interactive user interface experience. ASP.NET AJAX is a free framework from Microsoft that is built into ASP.NET 3.5 and later versions, and is available as a separate download for ASP.NET 2.0. This course introduces AJAX and covers foundational topics, such as JavaScript, DTHML, the Document Object Model (DOM) and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). The course then covers in depth the various components of Microsoft's AJAX support, including ASP.NET AJAX Extensions, the AJAX Client Library, and the AJAX Control Toolkit.
