Taking the dirt Away: AJAX

Note from the editor: Links from this post, written in the year 2006, had been revised and - if possible -updated.

Let me have a break up the series "Taking the Dirt Away" to name explicitly this post AJAX,  because of I would like to announce you something.

Some readers of this - your blog - may have noticed I've delayed myself in posting  during last weeks. The reason? Simple:  I was cooking something.

This is: Last May I was commited to design and plan a gentle 125 hour' introduction-seminar about AJAX, oriented to Spaniard's web-developers, team managers, web-designers and front-end teams. From zero to eternity, the course is intended to make your life as a developer a bit easier.

I have took several decisions planning it, most implying to leave apart some serious trends like: SAJAX ( Sorry, as a JavaScripter I see no sense in mixing PHP with JavaScript), or Google's JAVA API ( that is a good one) to focus properly on AHAH and Microformats.

It does also make sense to explain and explore the future possibilities of ECMASCRIPT as a Server-Side language, having so few hours to do it all, instead of recurring to old script-server languages.

Something, I guess, goes against the original meaning of AJAX.

So my counsel is, if you are a PHP-scripter, you better focus yourself helping to build PHP as a real strict-typed language when it comes 6.0. , and leave actionscripters or javascripters alone with themselves.

Furthermore, now we have more fascinating milestones things to climb at, like Ruby ( the rails thing ),  and Python. Languages that sure will deserve your attention dawn.

Concluding: Time for you now to start to learn AJAX. Here's the spanish version of the AJAX Professional Course. The price is right.

Notice this will be the first official professional training course offered in Spain, thanks to the interest Crea FormaciĆ³n, a consultancy company, has put into my initial proposal.

At the end of the course , you will get a precious certificate, be able to expand your abilities and you'll be in touch with the most professional team of shy developers (not all, you know who you are ) from BCN.

Leave your comments, if any.
