Manchester Ajax Workshop | April 3, 2006

Following the success of our recent Ajax Workshop we’ve decided to take the show on the road. While everybody who attended the London workshop had a fantastic time, the majority of attendees were from the south of England. This was a shame as there is a fantastic web community in the North of England, especially in cities like Manchester, Liverpool and Leeds. The few people who did make it down had a bit of a journey on their hands, not to mention an overnight stay in the big smoke. To make it easier for all the web developers in the North of the country, we’ve decided to hold another Ajax training workshop in Manchester on the 26th May.

The details of this workshop are pretty much the same as before. Ajax and DOM scripting expert Jeremy Keith will explain the fundamentals of these techniques before detailing their application through a series of practical examples. Unlike other workshops, this one will focus on core techniques rather than the use of script libraries, ensuring your Ajax applications are as accessible and degradable as possible.

The workshop is aimed at all experience levels. However you’ll probably get the most out of this workshop if you’re a CSS’er interested in learning what this Ajax stuff is really all about. On that subject, don’t worry if you’re not a JavaScript expert as we’ll be giving a free copy of Jeremy’s book, DOM Scripting – Web Design with JavaScript and the Document Object Model to everybody who attends.

Space on this event is very limited, so if you’d like to come along, start bugging your boss or training department now. We hope to see you there.

Couldn’t you do it 6 months earlier while I was living in Preston close to Manchester? Unlucky…

I wonder if I could get the day off work for some “important training”!?

Also, your CSS mastery didnt come yesterday as planned, its out of stock at Amazon and wont land till the end of April….

My copies of Blog Design Solutions, Bullet proof web design and Proffesional CSS did arrive along with a very funky “business cards - the art of saying hello”.

Dont you just love Birthdays!?

I think on visiting the spot, one thing came out very clear that almost all the amusing stuff were available there.
