London Geek Nights: Ajax
Review: London Geek Nights: Ajax at London offices of ThoughtWorks UK. 18:30 to 20:30
this reference in your handler functions - unfortunately I paid too much attention to this part to write much in the way of coherent notes, and although it was claimed the presentation would be made available online I'm unable to find it. This blog post seems to cover the majority of the same ground if you're interested, and the follow up post covers event namespacing which I was struggling to see the point of at the time but which I now see may be useful. Finally we were shown some Ajax - the load method lets you specify CSS selectors to specify a fragment of the document you've requested with the Ajax call and insert that in the document which is a neat shortcut I wasn't aware of.
Overall a fairly interesting night, even if I had to sit on the floor because I was late (nothing unusual there then). A bit disappointing the slides don't seem to have been made available, and we were a talk short because one of the scheduled speakers had to pull out before the event, but I'll probably go to some more Geek Nights, so . out of 5

Thanks for coming along and I'm glad you felt you learnt a few new bits.
The complete slides from the evening are available here.
The Thoughtworks guys did have the link to the slides even before I ran the presentation, so I'm not sure why they've not up a link.
I also plan to update the post to include screencasts of the demos I gave, so you can watch out for those too.
