Packt is pleased to announce details of a new book for ASP.NET developers, which will help them to understand how Microsoft AJAX will impact on the way they develop web applications and help them to make the transition to better, more responsive applications as easily as possible.
With ASP.NET AJAX (formerly known as ATLAS), developers can quickly create rich and responsive web pages with efficient server communication by simply adding a few server controls to their pages. Because ASP.NET AJAX is integrated with ASP.NET, developers have full access to the built-in ASP.NET 2.0 application services and the entire .NET Framework.
Microsoft AJAX Library Essentials is the most practical and efficient resource a reader can get to enter the exciting world of AJAX in ASP.NET. This book is the first step to creating faster, lighter, and richer web applications by using the Microsoft AJAX technologies to their full potential.
Written by experienced authors Cristian Darie and Bogdan Brinzarea, the main goal of this book is to get users comfortable with the Microsoft AJAX Library, a huge set of functions that can be used for developing powerful client-side functionality. To help aid efficiency in working with this library, Darie and Brinzarea walk through this new environment, and help users adapt to it with a detailed exploration of its object-oriented programming model. To compliment these new found skills, and to help users tackle their own projects, a comprehensive guide to the classes used in the book is included, providing an invaluable reference that can be referenced again and again.
