"Real-World AJAX" and "Flex 2.0 & Java" Books Announced by SYS-CON Books

New Book Titles Complement SYS-CON's Industry Events

SYS-CON Books (www.books.sys-con.com) has announced the forthcoming publication of two uniquely comprehensive and up-to-date books devoted to every aspect of AJAX technologies and Rich Internet Applications in the greater context of the overall "Web 2.0" spectrum:

Real-World AJAX: Secrets of the Masters

Edited by: Dion Hinchcliffe - ISBN: 0-9777622-0-3
Written by: Dion Almaer, James Benson, Kurt Cagle, Ajit Jaokar, Kevin Hakman, Anil Sharma
Book Website: www.RealWorldAjaxBook.com

A process, not a technology, AJAX is changing the landscape of the Web. Armed with this book, you can become a part of that change. "Real-World AJAX: Secrets of the Masters" not only showcases the history, the process, and the inspiration, it also helps you design actual AJAX applications using JavaScript, Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), the Document Object Model (DOM), and XMLHttpRequestObject.

The twelve authors of the book have been involved in using AJAX since its beginning, many of them long before it ever became named "AJAX." Rather than staying at the platform-agnostic level, the book will provide developers with real-world examples in all the main server-side technologies such as PHP, Java, .NET, and ColdFusion. And it includes the most detailed and comprehensive overview of Mobile AJAX ever published.

Aimed at everyone from enterprise developers to self-taught scripters, "Real-World AJAX: Secrets of the Masters" is the perfect book for anyone who wants to understand the basics of AJAX and will appeal equally to the enthusiast, Web developer, and corporate developer. It will help them implement AJAX in a better way. Advanced developers who want to enhance their AJAX skills will find the detailed code examples in the final four chapters particularly valuable.
