    ajax is just a term for using a combination of languages and technologies to improve/simplify the way a user interacts with a web page. the main idea is to load specific small amounts of data to a specific part of an already-loaded web page. so if you log in to a web page, only the parts of the site that are specific to logged in users should change on the page.

    Ruby on Rails is a web framework based on the Ruby programming language. Ruby/Rails fans will tell you it's the greatest thing on earth, but there are lots of great alternatives

    In other words, it saves on page refreshes and simply loads whats changed.

    They were giving out stickers that bastardized the RoR logo with RoF at the 2008 phpTek Conference. :)
