ho appena finito di seguire il corso di php|architect su php e ajax tenuto da joshua eichorn, niente di nuovo o eclatante: una spiegazione di base sulla tecnologia, l’introduzione all’uso della libreria jpspan con qualche piccolo esempio di utilizzo e due/tre suggerimenti su come debuggare il proprio codice.
