Video: Using the exercise files

If you're a Premium member of the lynda.com online training library or if you're watching this tutorial on a DVD-ROM, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this title. In the Exercise Files folder you'll find folders for each video in the series. Inside each of those folders you'll find a version called workingfolder that has the website when I began the video, and you'll find a finished folder with a copy of the website when I finished. So I'll usually begin by opening up the copies of the projects from my server and open some of the files in my favorite text editor.

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

If you're a Monthly member or an Annual member of lynda.com, you don't have access to the exercise files, but you can follow along from scratch with your own assets. So let's get busy with JavaScript and AJAX.

There are currently no FAQs about JavaScript and AJAX.
