This guide for web developers explains how to use Ajax together with the Ruby on Rails platform to build dynamic, interactive web applications. First, a series of tutorials teaches the fundamentals. Subsequent chapters discuss issues such as cross-platform development, debugging, RJS, and scalability. The volume concludes with complete references to Prototype 1.5 and script.aculo.us 1.6.1. It is assumed that readers are familiar with the technologies used in dynamic websites on both the client and server sides. Developer Raymond was a presenter at RailsConf 2006.
