October 2011 Meeting

JavaScript MVVM with Knockout.js and jQuery Templates

Knockout.js is an MIT licensed, open-source all-Javascript framework that supports two way client-side data binding between a web UI and Javascript view-model. Knockout can be easily introduced into any new or existing website. Knockout substantially reduces the amount of data binding and event handling code you need to write to create dynamic or AJAX web apps. Knockout is compatible with any server side code.

In this presentation Jarrett will walk through getting started with Knockout, show its important features and cover how it relates to the MVVM pattern and jQuery Templates. Knockout is very powerful but only requires a basic understanding of Javascript to get started.
