Web Development Solutions: Ajax, APIs, Libraries, and Hosted Services Made Easy

As a web user, you'll no doubt have noticed some of the breathtaking

applications available in today's modern web, such as Google Maps and

Flickrdesktop applications than the old style web sites you are used to.

You've probably also wished that you could create such things, and then

thought "nahhh, I'd need to know a lot of complicated code to be able to

even start creating sites like these." Well, think again. There is a lot

of complicated code involved in cutting edge "Ajax style" web

applications, but a lot of the hard work is already done for you, and

available on the Web. JavaScript libraries exist to provide most of that

Ajax/DOM Scripting functionality out of the box. Application programming

interfaces (APIs) exist to allow you to transplant complicated

applications such as Google Maps and Flickr right into your own web

sites. And hosting services such as Flickr and YouTube provide all you

need to store and retrieve your media (be it images, video, or whatever)

at your leisure, without having to worry about bandwidth issues and file

naming nightmares. All you need to know is enough to successfully wire

together all this functionality successfully and responsibly, and this

book shows you how. It starts from the very beginning of your journey,

showing you what's available, what you need, and how to set up an

effective development environment. After a solid base has been built, it

shows you how to build up each aspect of your site, including storing,

retrieving, and displaying content, adding images and video to your

site, building effective site navigation and laying it all out

beautifully using CSS, promoting your content so you will attract

visitors to your site, and adding special effects to enhance usability

and design asthetics...all with ready-made functionality available on

the Web! Life as a web developer has never been easier.
