Exploring Microsoft ASP.NET Ajax Server and Client Controls

Ajax is a combination of CSS, HTML, JavaScript and XMLHttpRequest. In this Ajax training course, we are using the Microsoft implementation of Ajax with ASP.NET . We will discuss the server and the client portions. We start with the download, and how to get everything ready to develop ASP.NET Ajax applications.
