AJAX Training with Steve Holzner – VTC

Posted: 26 Oct 2009 12:03 AM PDT

VTC - AJAX Training with Steve HolznerAjax, shorthand for Asynchronous Javascript and XML, is a set of technologies that allows you to create Web applications that don’t need to refresh Web pages in the browser. You can operate behind the scenes, connecting to the server, uploading and downloading data, and display the results in the browser using dynamic HTML. Using Ajax gives your Web pages the feel of a desktop application-the whole display will no longer flash when you click a button. VTC Author Steve Holzner helps you get started developing and building your own Ajax capable web pages. A familiarity with JavaScript, XML, PHP is recommended for this course.

UCG in UNIX and Linux

Posted: 26 Oct 2009 12:01 AM PDT

This book portends to be a universal command guide, and in all fairness they managed to get a good number of commands in the text. Unfortunately the ones the missed are significant (e.g. UNIX tar, which is universal in UNIX and Linux). I would not recommend this book for someone looking for help in distinguishing the difference in Linux and BSD commands.

While initially quite skeptical of a book attempting to cover such disparate operating systems, the reality is that I have found this volume to be indespensible. Since I work with Red Hat Linux primarily and Solaris (v8) also rather frequently, it's easy use the UCG to get the syntax differences of those two environments. Sure, I could just scan the man pages — but the already well-worn out copy of my UCG has enough bookmarks and paperclip (and yellow highlights) to make turning to it easier. It has also helped me better understand that there are quite a few ways to perform networking tasks using the Windows command line (as opposed to becoming dependent on the GUI). The charts showing the equivalency of commands across the diverse operating environments is a real time-saver. As a partisan of the O'Reilly books, I've come to the general conclusion that the value of a book is inversely proportional to its size. A big, thick book is generally fluff. But, this one is the exception.
