Head First Ajax Code: Chapter 5, Asychronous Applications

Chapter 5 Opening Image

Are you tired of waiting around? Do you hate long delays?
You can do something about it with asynchrony!

Head First Ajax

You've already built a couple of pages that made asynchronous requests to the server to avoid making the user sit around waiting for a page refresh. In this chapter, we'll dive even deeper into the details of building asynchronous applications. You'll find out what asynchronous really means, learn how to use multiple asynchronous requests, and even build a monitor function to keep all that asynchrony from confusing you and your users.
