Top 20 AJAX Tutorials for Beginners

AJAX uses a combination of Javascript and XML to allow web pages to be updated with new data from the server, without forcing the user to wait for a page refresh. Web applications can do a page update without refresh using Javascript, PHP and XML’s XMLHTTPRequest object (also known as ‘remote scripting’). As a deveoper, using AJAX allows you to build web applications having user interfaces like those of desktop applications, thus offering the user better experiences.

I have researched the web for the 20 best tutorials to help those new to AJAX get started in this important web development technology. These will hopefully help you to start coding web applications using AJAX and get you up to speed quickly. Some of these will also be helpful for more advanced AJAX developers.
