So thanks for watching JavaScript and AJAX. We've have got a lot of really good content in the online training library related to JavaScript, so here are some courses you should check out. Definitely start with Simon Allardice and JavaScript Essential Training. Even for experienced developers, you may find some really good tips and tricks, and some good introductions to some of the concepts that you need to know to do some more advanced courses. Now I tend to cover a lot of JavaScript-related courses, so here's a list of some of the other things I have on the library, like, for example, Building Facebook Applications with HTML and JavaScript, which has a good introduction to JSON data feeds.

The ability to read data and communicate information asynchronously is fundamental to modern web applications. In this course, author Ray Villalobos takes a look at integrating AJAX (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML) with JavaScript and jQuery—a combination that makes it easy to work with dynamic data and reduces the number of requests to the server. The course first explains what AJAX is, and shows how to load and reload pages with pure JavaScript, update the DOM, and read and parse data in the XML and JSON formats. Next, learn how to read and write information between the server and the client with AJAX methods in jQuery, and build a dynamic search application that updates search results as you type.

Topics include:
  • What is AJAX?
  • Making requests asynchronous
  • Updating the DOM with getElementById
  • Reading JSON files
  • Working with jQuery and AJAX
  • Sending and searching JSON data
  • Incorporating CSS transitions
Subjects:
Developer Web
Software:
Ajax JavaScript

You should all check out my course on jQuery Mobile Web Applications. It also has some additional information about hooking up to different kinds of APIs through JavaScript. You may also want to check out my blog, where I write about a lot of JavaScript- related topics, including templating with JavaScript, Bootstrap, and other libraries that I think are pretty cool. Another article that I suggest you read is this one from Douglas Crockford on JavaScript: The World's Most Misunderstood Programming Language. So, thank you again for watching, and I hope you have a great time programming the web.
