Client-Side Technologies: DHTML

As ColdFusion developers, we're used to developing cutting-edge software that is quick to develop and easy to maintain. But if the user can't figure out how to use it or feels that the system is too slow and cumbersome, all of your hard work may well go to waste. The fact is that, no matter how powerful and intelligent the software, if the user experience is poor, the software will go unused or will contribute to user frustration.

In this presentation, we'll explore the 4 technologies that together are called DHTML (HTML, CSS, DOM and JavaScript). We'll cover a brief introduction to each technology and show how, when combined, we can improve the user experience in ways not normally associated with web applications.
