It was very interesting to listen to - I looked forward to reviewing each track. It was quite an eye opener. I didn't even know about JsUnit. Amazing there are all those frameworks for Ajax - Taconite sounds interesting - and the book Foundations of Ajax. I thought the tracks were very clear and easy to understand as you covered all the basics. And it was great you had all that reference information to follow-up. You must have done a lot of research looking at all the various aspects of Ajax - advantages and disadvantages, etc. It certainly is a valuable resource. I plan to listen to it again - on my computer instead of the iPod - and make lots of notes.

At this stage it is really hard to offer constructive suggestions. It is clear, well layed out, a lot of great information. I can't imagine anyone not being very happy with it - especially as a comprehensive introduction. On the iPod I did notice one thing - the tracks play one after the other seamlessly and you are not aware you are on a new track sometimes - though usually you have some clue like "Quiz 2" or whatever. For the future - maybe a three to five second piece of silent play at the end of each track would help this - or have a "Track 5 - Advantages and Disadvantages" at the beginning. There is a slight difference in volume sometimes going to a new track and that is another way you can tell!

A great effort - well done!
