script.aculo.us and Prototype
Looks like Java Script libraries are the driving force behind the implementation of AJAX. Java Script is a must have... back end you can use PHP, Perl, Ruby on Rails, etc.
If your a newb like me, go straight to these: Prototype and script.aculo.us to find out what's going on. Thanks to Randal Schwartz for:
1. Commenting on my blog!
2. Writing my favorite programming book ever, actually I've read damn near every page of "Programming Perl"
3. Pointing me to script.aculo.us... though I don't really plan on using SmallTalk
