Creating Dynamic Websites with AJAX (3 days)

A buzzword in technical circles, AJAX (Asynchronous Javascript with XML) is a method of creating web sites that are dynamic. Sites created using AJAX can automatically react to user input, be updated when fields are completed (but not submitted), and overall act much more like a desktop application

The Open Technology Group (OTG) has been developing and teaching the concepts delivered in our AJAX training for years - in our JavaScript Programming course! Our instructors have taken the best pieces from this course and have combined them with new content to create our AJAX training. Focusing on creating functional code that allows for updates, our AJAX training courses will teach you how to design sites that are cross-browser compatible (and even work with non-JavaScript browsers).

Interested in developing AJAX applications to meet your custom needs? Contact us about our application mentoring services. Rather than providing generic training, our expert instructors can teach your group how to perform AJAX development, using functional examples from one of your projects!
