These patterns inform not just the design and engineering process, but also form the vocabulary for the creation of new product features. In this talk, Bill will give you insight in how to best take advantage of the power of Ajax technology for product design through a series of best practices from across the Web. These best practices are summarized as seven key principles for designing great products. Each principle is illustrated with lots of real world examples from both inside and outside of Yahoo! The nuances of each approach are discussed in detail with illustrating examples and counter-examples.
