For most web developers AJAX is simply another one of those "buzz words" that represents a "revolutionary new technology" that will change the way web sites work forever. It all sounds fantastic and there are lots of great articles that explain what AJAX is and why you'd want to use it. The biggest problem for most developers is figuring out just how AJAX can be applied to real-world situations.
In this article we're going to try and tackle the implementation question. We'll take an existing PHP contact form and gradually convert it into an AJAX-driven solution. The goal is to demonstrate not only the technology and how it can be used, but also the process that you, as a developer, can take to begin the transition from traditional web development to AJAX-based pages and sites.
