I'm very good with javascript.  Haven't used extjs or jquery in production, but I've used prototype, dojo, and asp.net ajax, and even wrote my own framework at one point.  I've played a bit w/ jquery a bit and like it, so I think we agreed before that was the way we were going to go on this.

I am pretty good with javascript as well. For the MVC CMS site I wrote, I used prototype to make my ajax calls. I also used JSON as the communication protocol between the front end and the server. Haven't played with jquery, but would like to learn.

Yeah, I think Chance was starting to lean us toward ext-js, and I'm cool with either, but my feeling is that we start with something that's pretty much js-free and add js later as enhancement.  Thoughts?

I agree. Lets keep this release with as little js as possible.

I wouldn't go with ext-js since they switched over to GPL for non-commercial licensing.

I have architected and implemented the presentation layer (html/css/js) for production sites of fortune 500 companies mainly using jQuery. Sign me up if you need my help :)

Ok, so I'm down w/ JQuery for this, in fact I found this really great article: http://brennan.offwhite.net/blog/2008/02/01/intellisense-for-jquery-in-visual-studio-2008/ for getting VS 2k8 to recognize it in intellisense.

VS 2008 SP1 is alos supposed to help with jquery intellisense, although i heard from a few people that the beta of sp1 is not good and not to install it but when it releases it will add js intellisense including better jquery intellisense

I don't know if this means anything to us but take a look

I installed SP1, have had no issues, and have jquery intellisense working.  Don't believe the hype.  :)
