Introduction to ASP .NET AJAX

Introduction to ASP .NET AJAX

Well, another successful event took place yesterday in another one of our regular community events of the Cyprus .NET User Group.

This time the topic was ASP .NET AJAX. Our special guest speaker was Karl Davies-Barrett, Developer Platform Evangelist (Microsoft Malta/Cyprus).

AJAX stands for Asynchronous JavaScript and XML. It allows the web developer to make calls from client-side to server-side without a complete Postback.

With AJAX .NET the web developer can easily create interfaces with reusable AJAX components and enhance existing web pages with the use of powerful AJAX controls, thus providing a richer experience for the user.

The event was a success and along with some very interesting discussions it lasted for two hours!

A big thank you to Karl for delivering this great presentation to our User Group!
