PeepCode Meet jQuery quickly became our fastest-selling title of all time. In this jQuery Ajax tutorial, we explore the Ajax features of the popular jQuery JavaScript framework.

We start simply with the transfer of HTML fragments in only one line of code. You’ll learn about the convenience methods in jQuery and then dive down into the details of the low-level Ajax method.

Included are the source code of the demo application in addition to tips and strategies for using jQuery well. Clear graphics and animated diagrams present the information you need to know over the course of 45 minutes.

Topics covered in the jQuery Ajax tutorial include:

  • Setup
  • JavaScript code organization
  • Querystring Params & Callback Functions
  • Global Handlers
  • Sending Data
  • Handling Errors Gracefully
  • Client-side API Strategy
  • Common Ajax Options
  • JSONP data transfer from other domains

Ruby’s Sinatra framework is used as a demo server, but the concepts apply to web frameworks in any programming language.

Available as part of a PeepCode Unlimited subscription (including streaming on our iOS app!) Business plans are also available.
