Well, now you’ve all done it. My editor, Jim, read the comments from my posting asking for book ideas. Now he wants me to write an entire book on AJAX! No rest for the weary.

So what I’m trying to do is flesh out an outline for the book, which will probably be 300-400 pages. Here’s what I have so far:

  1. What is AJAX?
  2. AJAX Basics
  3. Practical AJAX (describing the gooey innards and browser compatibility)
  4. Case Study: An RSS Reader

I also figure I’ll have the last chapter cover available AJAX frameworks that are out there, (DWR, etc.).

If anyone has any other ideas for chapters or case studies (which are long projects that take up an entire chapter), please let add a comment to this post.

Big News! Got your attention? Good. I’m looking for a co-author (or two) to help write the book. If you think you’ve got what it takes (writing talent, a decent amount of free time, ability to take criticism, and a willingness to have your photo appear next to mine on the cover of a book). If you’re interested, Contact Me directly (don’t leave a post). When you contact me, please tell me why you’d be a good fit, what you’d like to write about, and include a writing sample (or a link to a writing sample).
