AJAX Principles

This post briefs out the AJAX principles.

Minimal traffic:
Send and receive as little information as possible to and from the server to keep the traffic minimal

No surprises:
Being consistent so that user knows what to do next, no matter what interaction model is opted for design

Established conventions:
Borrow heavily from traditional web applications and desktop applications keeping the learning curve minimal

No distractions:
Avoid unnecessary and distracting page elements such as looping animations and blinking page sections

Consider primary and secondary users and how they most likely access the application

Avoid entire page download:
All server communication after the initial page download must be managed by the Ajax engine

User first:
Designing the application with the users in mind before anything else
