This situation got me thinking about Ajax and how it improves the overall Web experience. Yes, in an arguably twisted way, it's possible to look at Ajax through the greasy lens of a hamburger wrapper. And in just a moment you'll see how. Although it isn't strictly considered an acronym, the name Ajax ultimately derives from Asynchronous JavaScript and XML. The key benefits to Ajax are that it allows you to receive small chunks of data over a Web connection asynchronously, meaning you don't have to wait around for it, and in most cases you can avoid a full Web page reload.

But more importantly, you'll leave it with your own set of Ajax building blocks that you can take with you and apply to your own projects. The Audience for This Book I won't lie to you—this book by its very nature has to delve into JavaScript and PHP on a regular basis as the various Ajax examples are presented. However, the original goal of the book was for it to be approachable by anyone with knowledge of HTML and CSS (Cascading Style Sheets), and not necessarily a background in scripting, either client (JavaScript) or server (PHP).
