Zuggest featured in Ajax Patterns Book

25 October 2006 One Comment

Ajax Design PatternsThe recent book by Michael Mahemoff entitled Ajax Design Patterns featured a write-up of my Amazon search utility, Zuggest.

Zuggest implements the common-sense idea of submission throttling. Rather than submit a query for every single key-stroke the user hits, it waits until you’re done typing and then searches.

It’s always surprising and interesting to me to find that one man’s common sense is another man’s design pattern but there you go.

Read the sample chapter [Link] and search for "zuggest".


My own book: Amazon.com Mashups will also mention Zuggest along with TagLines and Zollage and so on so you can make your choice as to which one you buy.

And finaly a note to AUTHORS: If you are planning on including a reference to one of my applications, that’s great and thanks! But please drop me a note to let me know!!!! Common courtesy and all that.

    As i can judge from the chapter that you provided here the book promises to be of great interest. I haven’t even heard of this book until i came across it here on your blog.
