Summary

In this final chapter, we have taken an in-depth look at jQuery's Ajax framework. We can now craft a seamless user experience on a single page, fetching external resources when needed with proper attention to error handling, caching, and throttling. We explored details of the inner operations of the Ajax framework, including promises, transports, prefilters, and converters. We also learned how to extend these mechanisms to serve the needs of our scripts.
