Welcome to Internet and web programming andWeb 2.0! And welcome to a walkthrough of the Web 2.0 phenomenon from the technical, business and social perspectives. We’ve worked hard to create what we hope you’ll find to be an informative, entertaining and challenging learning experience. At Deitel & Associates, we write programming language professional books and textbooks for Prentice Hall, deliver corporate training worldwide and develop Web 2.0 Internet businesses. This book reflects today’sWeb 2.0, Ajax-based, Rich Internet Application-development methodologies.
The technologies you’ll learn here are appropriate for experienced professionals who build substantial information systems. You’ll find “industrial-strength” code examples. We have attempted to write in a clear and straightforward manner using best practices. Perhaps most important, the book presents hundreds of working code examples and shows the outputs produced when these examples are rendered in browsers or run on computers. We present all concepts in the context of complete working programs. We call this the “live-code approach.” All of the source code is available for download from www.deitel.com/books/ajaxfp/ under the heading “Download Code Examples and Other Premium Content for Registered Users,” once you’ve registered and logged on to our site.
