An article I wrote for work entitled “Simplifying Ajax-Style Web Development” was published in the May issue of the IEEE’s Computer magazine.  If you have used Gmail, Flickr, any parts of Windows Live, etc. you have encountered Ajax.

The first part of the article presents a brief history of Asynchronous Javascript and XML (Ajax), then introduces the benefits and shortcomings of developing web sites using Ajax techniques.  The article goes on to describe how Microsoft’s framework (code-named “Atlas“) reduces complexity, enhances productivity and enables the simple creation of richer user experiences via access to application services and other components of the Microsoft platform.

You can view the article online by first reviewing the relevant post on my work blog.  It is very high-level and includes examples to illustrate key concepts and benefits.

Let me know what you think.
