Ajax on Rails

Scott Raymond latest book, Ajax on Rails, has recently been published by O’Reilly. He also wrote What’s New in Prototype 1.5? on XML.com regarding the latest changes for Prototype 1.5.

  • The book demonstrates how to use Ajax and Rails to build
    high-performance, scalable applications without having to write reams of
    difficult-to-maintain JavaScript code.
  • Provides a thorough, low-level understanding of what’s under the hood,
    with a high-level understanding of how to use Ajax techniques
    effectively.
  • Includes a complete reference to Prototype 1.5 and script.aculo.us 1.6.1,
    which can be used even outside of the Rails platform.
  • Three fully worked out applications—a quiz program, a photo gallery,
    and a workgroup collaboration tool—show how everything fits together
    in practice.
