For next week's class, you'll be reading the following two articles, both published in 2005. They address two topics still very relevant to Web development in 2009: Web 2.0 and Ajax.
What Is Web 2.0
Design Patterns and Business Models for the Next Generation of Software
by Tim O'Reilly
Ajax: A New Approach to Web Applications
by Jesse James Garrett
The written part of your assignment is to make a list of at least 10 key terms from the two articles that you think are important to understanding them. Provide short definitions for each of the 10 terms (these can include company names or products), citing any sources you use to help you define them.
After you've written the terms and definitions, write a short description of how you researched these terms. You can use one term as an example, or you can explain your research process in general. I'm curious to know if you go to a particular search engine first, or if there are other resources you use. Do you often use more than one source?
So, that means the written assignment has two sections:
A. Key terms with definitions
B. Short explanation of research process
Typed, double-spaced Word, PDF, or text document with 12 pt font size. (I strongly prefer .doc files to .docx files.)
Email as an attachment to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org with "HW Assignment #2" as the subject line.
Please include your name and assignment number in the body of the document.
