Course description

AJAX is based on a collection of open and standards-based technologies that can give Web pages you build a responsiveness that rivals what you get in desktop applications. The course starts out with an exploration of the fundamentals of AJAX. Then you’ll go through a few of the more interesting features in JavaScript that will help you write code that runs in the browser. Next up is an introduction to the five server-side controls that you can use in a Web forms page to reduce the amount of data that has to move between client and server. Then you’ll explore some of the techniques you can use to create applications that give users a good experience with your Web application. Next you’ll look at the AJAX Control Toolkit, a collection of server-side controls and extenders that do a lot of the work that you used to have to write reams of JavaScript code to accomplish.

Each LearnNowOnline training course is made up of Modules (typically an hour in length). Within each module there are Topics (typically 15-30 minutes each) and Subtopics (typically 2-5 minutes each). There is a Post Exam for each Module that must be passed with a score of 70% or higher to successfully and fully complete the course.


This course assumes that you are familiar and experienced with Microsoft’s .NET Framework and ASP.NET development tools. You should be familiar with Web development and understand how HTTP and HTML work to produce Web pages for the user. You should have experience writing applications with ASP.NET 3.5, 4.0, or later Web forms, and be familiar with how ASP.NET processes page requests, and have strong experience with .NET Framework 3.5, 4.0, or later programming. You should have experience with Visual Studio 2008, 2010, or later for building Web application projects. Experience with building database applications using these tools will be helpful, although not strictly necessary. You should also have some experience with writing JavaScript.
