Time: 4:30pm - 5:15pm
Location: Portland 255

Let's see how many design patterns we can cram into a 45-minute talk. Starting with the basic Ajax pattern itself, we'll throw anything HTML, JavaScript, or CSS that could possibly be called a "pattern" and see what stuck in building live "Web 2.0" web sites. Anonymous functions, closures, CSS workarounds, and HTML injection are just a few of these patterns. Like any pattern, each has a problem it is designed to solve and "consequences" in doing so.
