My first class towards my Masters Degree is coming to an end. Its been a great experience overall. I have learned the proper use of HTML5, CSS3, and got my feet wet with JavaScript.

JavaScript has definitely got me to understand jQuery and its potential! I never have had any experience with it, but I think with practice and in the future it will become part of my tool bag of languages for development.

I’m also looking forward to getting exposed to AJAX (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML). It provides a method for exchanging data asynchronously between clients and servers to avoid full page reloads.

A great example of the use of AJAX is social network Facebook.  Its “newsfeed” allows a user to scroll down almost forever.  This feature is called “Infinite Scroll“.   Not all websites should use this feature, but it is something to consider for your website!
