More PHP/jquery projects
Not entirely sure if this is the right place to make this suggestion but here it goes...hopefully some of you guys agree! I think Treehouse should put more project lessons for both jquery and php, perhaps both of them used together. I love the idea of making an online store and an interactive website, but i would like to see more projects using those languages in different ways.
For example it was mentioned that PHP is good for building forums, maybe a project that includes making a forum would be a good idea, then later on adding features in with jquery to make it interactive. Or perhaps make a whole track that takes you from building a static site, and taking that static site and making a robust web app that uses php and jquery, The site would be different from Smells like bakin obviously!
Also another thing I would like to see is AJAX lessons!!! Any of you want to see similiar things?
p.s. sorry for long thread and if i am breaking rules!
Hi Alexander Foster,
AJAX is a topic that comes up often in the forums. I have put together a video that explains the very basics. The example uses PHP to do simple math through a form. Then we will take that form and use jQuery and AJAX to capture that form post and just update the results.
This should help get you started as well as give you a small test project to play around with. You can download all the files here. I hope this helps you out.
Have fun! Hampton

An AJAX deep dive on treehouse must be cool.

Hey thanks a lot for posting the video Hampton Paulk! It will be a perfect spot to starting learning some AJAX. Also it is comforting to know the staff is browsing around the forum and answering questions :)

Ajax is pretty simple, so I can't imagine that an entire deep dive could be dedicated to Ajax alone. What would be really cool is a course on a js library like backbone or angular js. So we can learn to object orientate our Ajax calls and optimize the front end. :)
I have seen many ways to use AJAX some of them don't work on IE (this reason put me away from using AJAX) , I was wonder if the code displayed on the video is going to work efficiently across browsers and if this technique is ok to used on actual production.

This is awesome. i have been trying to wrap my head around AJAX and JSON and this begins to clarify it for me. Thanks.
that was really gr8 demo, wish we cud see a complex course on AJAX soon, since I get this question at every interview.
Awesome job! It was detailed and the pace was perfect.
Very nice video... I really needed this for a project I'm working on where I am implementing a 'click-to-see-more-entries' feature where it pulls users posts from a database and displays them without refreshing the page.
