Holdener's new book, Ajax: The Definitive Guide (O'Reilly, US $49.99) demonstrates how tried-and-true technologies (aka "the same old stuff") make Ajax possible, and shows how these older technologies are the underlying secret of that decidedly modern Web 2.0 feel.
The book also explains:
Anthony T. Holdener, III currently builds Internet/Intranet applications utilizing the latest available technologies while striving for accessibility and cross-browser compatibility. He has worked with the web in one form or another since 1997 when he helped open an Internet cafe in Fairview Heights, Illinois. Following graduation from St. Louis University with a degree in Computer Science, Anthony has worked as a web architect or developer for the past eight years for a number of Fortune 500 companies in the St. Louis area. Anthony resides in the village of Shiloh, Illinois, a suburb of St. Louis, Missouri, with his wife and twin toddlers. When not on his computer, Anthony enjoys reading, painting, and spending time with his family.
