The Mason application server lets you build Perl-based dynamic web applications. Its clever component system is a natural fit for Ajax integration. This talk will cover how to design for current or future Ajax functionality or easily retrofit an existing application.

Assuming a basic understanding of Perl, JavaScript, and Ajax fundamentals, we will discuss the problem of duplicated functionality common in Ajax additions and show how Mason components are a perfect fit for reusability in an Ajax-enhanced web application.
