KnockoutJS with Ely Lucas

KnockoutJS is an open source JavaScript library that simplifies building dynamic Web UIs using the Model View View Model (MVVM) design pattern.  XAML developers have long enjoyed great features that make building data driven applications easy.  KnockoutJS brings these same features to the Web and JavaScript!  In this talk, Ely Lucas will combine KnockoutJS and the new Web API functionality in ASP.Net to demonstrate some truly amazing web goodness.  Come learn about Knockout's primary strengths (such as declarative bindings, automatic two way data binding, and templating) and see why developing for the web can be a great experience.


Ely Lucas is a web and mobile developer that lives in Denver, Colorado.  You can follow him on twitter @elylucas or visit his blog at

    Ely gave a succinct introduction to the fundamental concepts of KnockoutJS and ASP.NET MVC's Rest API framework. I look forward to downloading his examples from GitHub and working through them. Thank you
