AJAXWorld University Bootcamp is a compelling, intensive, one-day, hands-on training program that will teach Web developers, Web designers, and other Web professionals how to build high-quality AJAX applications from beginning to end. The Bootcamp is an interactive, in-depth and highly practical crash course. The instructor will lecture for the minimum amount of time necessary and then will take the students rapidly and thoroughly through the paces of developing with AJAX using the latest techniques, libraries/frameworks, and best practices.

The Bootcamp sample application, a photo-sharing application, will be fully functioning by the end of the day and attendees will be able to take their application home to experiment further. Attendees will also take home all of the courseware, which provides additional "stretch" work that the attendee can use to further deepen his or her understanding of AJAX.
