Are you Web 2.0 worthy? Find out what answers were the correct ones:
Question 1: This was supposed to be an easy one, but I guess it wasn’t too easy since a few people got it mixed up. Jesse James Garrett from Adaptive Path coined the term, and Scott McNealy is actually the CEO of Sun Microsystems. I guess I’m the only one who knows all the big tech company CEO names from memory 🙂
Question 2: The answer is #4, and all the other ones are basically just visual effects that have nothing to do with AJAX at all.
Question 3: You can use whatever language you want, it doesn’t matter!
Question 4: Ruby on Rails is a web framework, not an entirely new language.
Question 5: The visual effects library used all over the place is script.aculo.us, not Prototype. Prototype is a JS library that makes RoR coders feel more at home, and script.aculo.us is a visual effects library that builds on top of Prototype code.
Question 6: AJAX functionality is achieved by using XMLHttpRequest.
Question 7: “Web 2.0” applications don’t have to follow a specific set of instructions, they just have to look nice, work correctly, and put the user first. And maybe have an API, but that’s up for debate 😉
