But all it is simply running faster than your normal pace for a short amount of time. Then you slow down and repeat the process a few times.
It's that simple. Just run faster. Ajax callbacks also sound more complicated than they actually are. The action they execute is so simple that most developers think they're missing something.
But when its broken down, they really just perform three steps that make a huge impact on the performance of your application, whether it's on the desktop, Web, or mobile device. With the help of Selwyn, Martin Heller is putting to bed the questions surrounding how an Ajax callback works.
The new entry in Alphapedia, Alpha Five's wiki-based, context-sensitive help system, breaks down the chain of events in an Ajax callback. So if you've ever had any questions about how it works, jump over to the new entry now. Thanks Martin and Selwyn for putting this entry together!
