You have learned how to create responses to events, validate forms and how to make different scripts run in response to different scenarios.
The next step is to learn about the HTML DOM, jQuery, and AJAX.
If you want to learn about server-side scripting, the next step is to learn ASP or PHP.
The HTML DOM defines a standard way for accessing and manipulating HTML documents.
If you want to learn more about the DOM, please visit our HTML DOM tutorial.
If you want to learn more about jQuery, please visit our jQuery tutorial.
AJAX is not a new programming language, but a new way to use existing standards.
AJAX is about exchanging data with a server, and update parts of a web page - without reloading the whole page.
Examples of applications using AJAX: Google Maps, Gmail, Youtube, and Facebook tabs.
If you want to learn more about AJAX, please visit our AJAX tutorial.
ASP / PHP
While scripts in an HTML file are executed on the client (in the browser), scripts in an ASP/PHP file are executed on the server.
With ASP/PHP you can dynamically edit, change or add any content of a Web page, respond to data submitted from HTML forms, access any data or databases and return the results to a browser, customize a Web page to make it more useful for individual users.
Since ASP/PHP files are returned as plain HTML, they can be viewed in any browser.
