Back to basics: Susan Bush schools you on AJAX

We interrupt our usual blog post to hype a great new Alpha Five book. Back in October, Susan Bush told you all about her new book, "Alpha Five Made Easy." She also agreed to share some excerpts from her book and how-to tips. Today Susan is bringing it back to basics.

She'll tell you all about AJAX from her book, "Alpha Five Web Applications Made Easy, The Basics and More for Version 10.5." New comers to Alpha Five will find Susan's guest post to be very helpful, so make sure you bookmark it. So I'll step aside, and let Susan take it from here.

We haven’t touted AJAX in a while, but if you are new to Alpha Five, you gotta know about it! Are you wondering what all the fuss is about AJAX?

What can it do for you and why you should be so delighted that Alpha Five gives it to you at no extra charge? I'll tell you all you need to know.

The best part is that, once you understand how AJAX enhances Web applications, you can forget all about it because it's automatically added to your Web components.

That leads us to the next question for newcomers to this amazing and easy-to-use software. “What is a Web component?”

These remarkable features -- unique to Alpha Five -- make it easy for programmers and non-programmers alike to create sophisticated Web apps. That’s right, you don’t have to know JavaScript or any other programming languages. However, you can do even more if you are familiar with them, but there is more built-in to the software than most average users will ever need.

And that brings me to my favorite question, “How can I, as a non-programming business owner, create a Web (or desktop) database?” I love this question because the answer is so simple, “Get Alpha Five!” These questions and more are covered in my book.

And you can get the answers and a taste of what they offer for free. First, if you haven’t already done so, you can get a free 30-day trial of Alpha Five Version 10.5. Then go ahead and download a free sample of the Introduction, Table of Contents, and Chapter 1 of "Alpha Five Web Applications Made Easy, The Basics and More for Version 10.5." You'll see the pieces come together in my step-by-step book.
