Fellow web 2.0 workgroup member Dion Hinchcliffe has written a very nice blog entitled Seven Things Every Software Project Needs to Know About Ajax
As is typical of Dion, his blogs contain a lot of information in simple bullet point form
Two things strike me about this blog: firstly Ajax is only 18 months old! – and yet it has become so much mainstream. Secondly, as I have said before in the case of SQL, popular web technologies morph into unintended applications i.e. Ajax was never originally meant to do what it is doing now!.
With that extended usage comes complexity and a steep learning curve. This is largely the point of Dion’s blog. Expect more of Ajax from both Dion and I since Ajaxworld expo starts at Santa Clara next week – and we are both speaking there! Please email me if you are attending Ajaxworld next week and let’s catch up(ajit.jaokar at futuretext.com )
