Ever wonder what the programmers are talking about when they mention AJAX? Have you heard of jQuery but aren’t entirely sure what it is or what it does? Are you interested in learning more about usability in web design? Attend the webinar “Web of Languages: An Introduction to Usability and Developing Web Applications with AJAX and jQuery” on May 30, 2012 from 1:00pm-4:00pm PDT to find out more.
Details: “Web of Languages” introduces the basic to early intermediate librarian, library staff member, student, web developer or administrator to usability, as well as developing applications with AJAX and jQuery. Derek Christiansen, Web Technologist for San Jose State University School of Library and Information Science, will define AJAX and present a number of SJSU applications of AJAX; Cary Gordon of the Cherry Hill Company will discuss the uses of jQuery in web development; and Sarah Houghton, Acting Director of San Rafael Public Library, will provide perspective on web usability with an overview of web development techniques for library websites and web applications. The purpose of the program is to introduce these technologies and techniques so that librarians and library staff can better understand and visualize what is possible using these web development techniques.
