Learning AJAX

My first tutorial on the second day of OSCON is Learning AJAX given by Alex Russell. I've been looking forward to this one, every year at OSCON I pick one tutorial on sheer interest alone rather than on whether it looks like it'll actually be directly useful. Last year I went to Cross Platform Rendezvous given by Stuart Cheshire from Apple, and while it wasn't immediately useful it gave me a lot to think about and certainly influenced the direction I took eSTAR over the last year, I'm hoping for the same sort of thing out of Alex's AJAX tutorial.

Update: Laura Thompson is also blogging Learning AJAX...

Update: Interesting stuff, a lot to think about, although I think I'm going to stick with my current plan which is to use perlVNC in nefarious ways rather than go with AJAX. What am I going to do with perlVNC? I'll tell you when it's done...
