Over the past few months I've had the pleasure of working closely with Alessandro 'Garbin' Gallo and Rama Krishna Vavilala on an Ajax book called ASP.NET AJAX In Action. Today, portions of the book become available through Mannings early access program, also known as MEAP. Through MEAP, you can receive early and updated versions of chapters as they become written, polished and eventually released. It also means that you can provide us with your input and feedback, which can influence changes we make to the chapters. We're very excited to share all our hard work and look forward to your feedback.
