AJAX lets us make an HTTP request without refreshing the entire browser page.
It's worth understanding because it's in widespread use and helps explain how we
got to where we are with client-side rendering. In this video I'll give you the
intuition for how ajax works. Then I'll write code to make an ajax request and
respond to the request from the server. To make things as simple as possible I'm
not using any frameworks other than Node.js and what is provided natively in the
browser. So instead of using jQuery or some other library to work with the DOM
I'll use the native methods like XMLHTTPRequest. Then you can apply the
concepts to any framework you decide to use.
