We have learned that the Ajax methods provided by jQuery can help us to load data in several different formats from the server without a page refresh. We can execute scripts from the server on demand and send data back to the server.
We've also learned how to deal with common challenges of asynchronous loading techniques, such as keeping handlers bound after a load has occurred and loading data from a third-party server.
This concludes our tour of the basic components of the jQuery library. Next, we'll look at how these features can be expanded upon easily using jQuery plugins.
