I decided to share all my eBooks on programming. This week is AJAX.

Ajax (asynchronous JavaScript and XML), or AJAX, is a group of interrelated web development techniques used for creating interactive web applications or rich Internet applications. With Ajax, web applications can retrieve data from the server asynchronously in the background without interfering with the display and behavior of the existing page. Data is retrieved using the XMLHttpRequest object or through the use of Remote Scripting in browsers that do not support it. Despite the name, the use of JavaScript, XML, and asynchrony is not required.

  1. Hi Chip. I found you through Liz’s Blog-to Show weekend. I’m looking forward to perusing your archives. I’m a relatively new blogger and there is so much to learn.

    If you haven’t already found 2 friends of mine who are also valuable resources, you should check them out. Barbara at and Cath at

  2. Hi, I just wanted to say that many of these links are broken.

    Actually, all that I have tried, could you please re-upload some?


  3. Actually the links are not broken, the scribd team removed them for copyright infringement. They were my own e-books in PDF format, legally purchased.

    I’ll just have to find another host.
