Using Ajax from Perl

Using Ajax from Perl by Dominic Mitchell

If you're even remotely connected to web development, you can't have failed to have heard of Ajax at some point in the last year. It probably sounded like the latest buzzword and was one of those things you stuck on the 'must read up on later' pile. While it's definitely a buzzword, it's also quite a useful one.

Found this very useful article on I've recently added some asynchronous JavaScript calls to my Perl code. The feedback from users has been positive.

Writely again

Interesting news. Apparently Google is purchasing the Writely online wordprocessor. This surely will bring the AJAX/Web 2.0 hype machine to full volume.

Yes, we've been acquired by Google, and we're really excited about this for many, many reasons. But I can hear you saying, "I don't care why YOU'RE excited - I want to know how this change will impact ME!"
