KnockoutJS for the .NET Developer

In the new Javascript revolution, Knockout is the latest to enter the MV* libraries. In this talk, Sujesh Arukil will start with the basics of knockout, starting with a few jsFiddles, followed by setting up Knockout in Visual Studio, Knockout Observables, Bindings, in-built bindings, custom bindings, templating, extensions and techniques to achieve a better performing application. Knockout is a JavaScript library that helps you to create rich, responsive display and editor user interfaces with a clean underlying data model. Any time you have sections of UI that update dynamically (e.g., changing depending on the user’s actions or when an external data source changes), KO can help you implement it more simply and maintainably.

    Did the date of this event change or did I just not pay enough attention to detail when it was first posted?

      Nope - it's been Sept 11. Hopefully you can still make it.

      Great thanks, actually I initially thought it was 9/12 which I wasn't sure I could do, but 9/11 should be fine for me. I just have that feeling that I'm forgetting something and my anniversary is 9/16 so that's not it. lol

    Is this similar to ExtJs (Sencha)?

      ExtJs is more an MVC Framework. Knockout is more an MVVM model. Essentially both enable you to achieve separation of Concerns. ExtJs has been a long time player, Knockout is relatively young but is simpler and the learning curve I believe is very small.
