The class is written by San Shing, a technology architect at Sun, who puts the class material online in various formats as he writes. I read through Ajax Basics slides from week 1, a 65 slide PDF file with speaker notes which does a thorough job at explaining the fundamentals of AJAX.
It's good to see this much information presented in a class format made available for free. Note he is also asking for volunteers:
- I am looking for volunteers who can create NetBeans projects that we can add to the hands-on labs. I am looking for more exercises in all areas of Ajax-relevant topics especially in the areas of Dojo, JSF, GWT, DWR, Web Application Frameworks etc. Your name will be mentioned in the lab document.
