Understanding AJAX

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.
