In chapter 10 of this book, titled "AJAX Warrior: Back to the Future in a Fun Way!", Zammetti walks through his final Ajax project, a game. With this example application Zammetti covers "naked" Ajax (not using a library or toolkit), JSON, and CSS and DOM scripting techniques. Associative arrays and a new server-side framework are also discussed. After walking through planning, design and implementation stages, readers can see the fruits of their labor firsthand, and play the game.
