JavaScript and Ajax for the Web, Sixth Edition (Visual QuickStart Guide)

  •; By James Pyles (Posted by tripwire45 on Nov 21, 2006 11:50 PM EDT)
  • Story Type: News Story

This morning, I accidentally put my contact lenses in wrong (left in right eye, right in left eye) and when I got in my car to drive to work, I thought I was going blind. I quickly realized my mistake and fixed it when I got to my destination. My little misadventure is relevant because I got a similar feeling when I tried to read "JavaScript and Ajax for the Web". It's probably a consequence of the series format (and so the writers can hardly be faulted...blame the publishers instead) and as a result, I found it pretty hard to read this book let alone learn from it.

  • Open Democracy; By Felix Cohen and Becky Hogge (Posted by Scott_Ruecker on Nov 21, 2006 9:40 PM EDT)

Free Software is big business. This may come as a surprise to those whose understanding of open source software development practice ends at the caffeinated hacker contributing code in the small hours from the comfort of his bedroom. But in between this, and the fact that five of the ten most reliable web hosters run their sites on the open source operating system Linux, is the story of an industry of support and bespoke development that gives the major corporations running this software the products and peace of mind they need to conduct business on a grand scale.
