    A very informative presentation that touched on all of the basic knockout capabilities and even touched on some advanced concepts. The presenter, Phil DeVeau, was knowledgeable and stayed until every attendee had departed.

    I remember you mentioning that one should never use switch and instead use strategy pattern. Never is a strong word so :)

    This was really great, coming from someone who's new to KO but have worked with JS much. Well put together. If done again, I would suggest booking more time, perhaps 3 hours with a break, so that you can go over js/html in more detail. While I'm familiar with what was there, it was a bit hard to catch all the pieces and put them together in the beginning, it was pretty fast going back and forth.

    Will be at the iSummit in Orlando, enjoying the great conference as well as representing CraftTek with Murray Anne. Hate that we will be missing this user group, but I know it will be a phenomenal one, as we know that the speaker is extremely a master at what he does! Enjoy the new venue!

      Thanks for the vote of confidence Sylvia, sorry you can't make it. Hopefully I don't fall on my face on my first presentation :)
