Let’s Build Modern, Standards Based JavaScript HTML5 Web Apps!

  • February 27, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • Microsoft Office

Speaker: Clayton C. Peddy

Over the last year, we have been discussing jQuery, Knockout, Breeze, OData, MVC and WebAPI. This week Microsoft released their Web Tools[masked] update which includes the latest Single Page Application MVC template bringing everything together. jQuery, Knockout, WebAPI, tons of AJAX? It’s all here.

Let’s discuss common practices for building a JavaScript HTML5 application built on a RESTful server API. Clayton will demonstrate the newest web tools, show off the latest beta code and cover a few additional topics like using claims based Json Web Tokens.

Clayton C. Peddy is a Managing Architect at Terrace Software, Inc. He's a Computer Science graduate of California State University, Chico. Clayton began his career in software design and development in 1994. He is a professional author and speaker focused on Microsoft technologies and their practical use in a wide range of projects.

    I just uploaded a very simple project demonstrating use of the Microsoft.IdentityModel JWT code. Questions? Feel free to create a discussion and we can keep the conversation going. Thanks!

    It was very helpful... It deserves 5 starts, but the reason I'm giving 5 stars is because it was too many information for a short time... great job by Clayton he was an incredible exponent.

    • Clayton C. P.

      Thanks Edgar. I totally agree, it was a whirlwind tour across many of the latest technologies...most of which few developers have actually had a chance to use on a daily basis. Let's plan on having more focused discussions around these concepts.

    • Clayton C. P.

      Not yet. I know you have mentioned several good ideas, but if there is anyone in the group who would like to help me tackle this, please drop me a line. Thanks!

    A huge thank you to everyone! I really enjoyed talking about the new web tools and technologies. Here are some quick links to get you going:

    Knockout ViewModel Plugin I typically use:

    I will post the JWT code here later today.

    Thanks to Clayton for a very informative evening. Looking forward to when he posts his code on JWT. Authorizing web service calls has always been tricky for those of us relying on FormsAuthentication and his solution appears very elegant.
