Did you know AJAX can be used as an adjective? I do, because I hear it a lot. Here are some typical comments from my clients and associates.
First, in its natural form, as a noun: “Mike, are you going to use AJAX on that?”
Now, as an adjective: “Mike, can you make that page ajaxy?”
And, as a verb: “Mike, are you going to ajax that page up?”
I’m still waiting on an adverb usage. Maybe, “Mike, can you ajaxingly make that page really cool?”
So the next time your client asks you to “ajax it up,” just smile and confidently reply “you got it!”
I’d love to hear from you. What are great resources you’ve found for web magic and trickery? Post a comment.
