Workshop: AJAX and Atlas driven web development
In this code-intensive workshop you will get a good understanding of and introduction to AJAX and Atlas driven web applications. In the first workshop session we start off with some simple walkthrough code to get a feel for some basic features of AJAX technologies such as asynchronous web requests and DOM manipulation. In the next workshop session we move on to more complex functionality, but obtained in a much easier way. This may be accomplished in a short timeframe with the help of an AJAX based Framework in which a lot of functionality practically is given to you. Atlas is Microsoft´s powerful initiative in the AJAX development sphere. Among other things we will look at both programmatic as well as declarative ways of writing Atlas code.

This workshop contains walkthrough material for novice web developers. But seasoned web developers with previous AJAX/Atlas experience may also turn their attention towards the more complex lab material with focus on code analysis rather than copy-paste code.
