Ext JS Training Overview

Accelebrate's DOM Scripting, Ajax and User Interfaces Using Ext JS training course teaches attendees to use the Ext JS library to simplify many client-side scripting and user interface development challenges. Attendees will learn how to perform Document Object Model (DOM) manipulations that dynamically change the content and appearance of their Web pages, how to make Ajax requests to retrieve and incorporate new content from a server and how to create user interface elements such as tab panels, accordions and editable grids.
