ABSTRACT The development of a web 2.0 portal using Ajax and jQuery techniques. This paper describes the development of a web portal using technologies like PHP, jQuery and Ajax. Regular web portals simply use PHP and MySQL, which is not enough to provide the interactivity the user needs from a web portal. jQuery technique is designed to change the way you write JavaScript, because it is very compact and easy to use and understand. jQuery is also very popular being used by Google, IBM, NBC, Amazon, Wordpress and many others. Ajax technique is used to increase responsiveness and interactivity of the web pages achieved by exchanging small amounts of data « behind the scenes » so that the entire web pages do not have to be reloaded each time there is a need to fetch data from the server.
