IBM: Where and when to use Ajax

February 6th, 2008

My second IBM developerWorks article is now online: Where and when to use Ajax in your applications.

It's not a very technical article, so you can read it even if you've never programmed before. I talk about the benefits of using Ajax, and point out some problem areas that need special attention so that Ajax doesn't end up ruining your web site. It's essentially a summary of my Unobtrusive Ajax book.

The article was fun to write and I hope you enjoy reading it!
