Ajax and design patterns : Do we need a client tier?

Summary
An Ajax application can go for several hours without leaving the original page. In this talk, Dave Crane explores ways to apply design patterns to the client tier, and how the use of patterns compares with the server-side. He examines the tension between maintaining server-control and delegating control to the client, and looks at the pros and cons of each architecture with real-world examples.
