The web design recruitment industry

“We’re looking for a great Web 2.0 designer!”

“Our client is after a designer who can make sites look Web 2.0.”

Ajax incorporates: • standards-based presentation using XHTML and CSS; • dynamic display and interaction using the Document Object Model; • data interchange and manipulation using XML and XSLT; • asynchronous data retrieval using XMLHttpRequest; • and JavaScript binding everything together.”

Web 2.0 on Wikipedia en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_2 Web 2.0 refers to a perceived second generation of web-based communities and hosted services which aim to facilitate collaboration and sharing between users. Although the term suggests a new version of the World Wide Web, it does not refer to an update to any technical specifications, but to changes in the ways software developers and end-users use the internet.
