Understanding AJAX In WordPress Plugins

For me it’s difficult to retain and grasp the programming concept, especially if it’s new, if I don’t understand the why behind the concept. I didn’t ¬†understand how to properly use AJAX in WordPress. I started searching google and found many article explaining how to use it. The problem was it didn’t go into enough detail for me to understand why. The articles said do it this way, but didn’t explain.

The following article from Smashing Magazine goes into great detail on how to use AJAX in WordPress.
