“Web of Languages” introduces the basic to early intermediate librarian, library staff member, student, web developer or administrator to usability, as well as developing applications with AJAX and jQuery. Sarah Houghton will provide perspective on web usability with an overview of web development techniques for library websites and web applications; Derek Christiansen will define AJAX and present a number of SJSU applications of AJAX; and Cary Gordon will discuss the uses of jQuery in web development.
