JavaScript Programming with AJAX and JQuery

The course enables existing developers to program using all the features of JavaScript, manipulate the DOM tree within an HTML document and validate information entered into HTML forms and send asynchronous requests to the server via XHR. There is a strong emphasis on writing maintainable, cross browser code and avoiding the common pitfalls associated with scripting languages in general and JavaScript in particular.By default the course uses Firefox (plus Firebug) and Chrome for all the examples and exercises. The course can be extended by a day to add coverage of JavaScript frameworks such as DOJO and jQuery.
