Continuing from the previous podcast (cough 12 weeks ago), more programming patterns. Unfortunately, this recording (and the next one) went pear-shaped. Sorry. I do, however, recommend them to those of you who’ve been wondering what an Ajax talk would have sounded like in crackly 1930s recording technology, and one in which the speaker has a severe cold. FYI The level was too low and it didn’t correct very well…maybe one day, I’ll re-record, but for now I’d prefer to just get them out there as they have been sitting in the libsyn archive for many weeks.
The 40-minute podcast covers the following patterns:
- Call Tracking Accommodate busy user behaviour by allocating a new XMLHttpRequest object for each request. See Richard Schwartz's blog entry.Note: Pending some rewrite to take into account request-locking etc.
- Periodic Refresh The browser refreshs volatile information by periodically polling the server.
- Distributed Events Keep objects synchronised with an event mechanism.
- Cross-Domain Proxy Allow the browser to communicate with other domains by server-based mediation.
This podcast covers six patterns on Browser-Server Dialogue: Call Tracking, Periodic Refresh, Submission Throttling, Explicit Submission, Distributed Events,
