Knockout Fundamentals
Knockout is an MVVM JavaScript framework that allows you to quickly develop rich applications with a declarative style and rich templating support.
by Steve Michelotti (http://www.pluralsight.com/author/steve-michelotti) , Level: Beginner

As web applications become richer and more interactive, a better client-side experience is essential and expected by the user. KnockoutJS is a JavaScript MVVM framework that provides developers with a robust toolset including declarative bindings, dependency tracking, and advanced templating. In addition to all the powerful tools that are built-in, the extensibility of KnockoutJS is what allows you to take your applications to the next level. Whether you’re building a desktop browser application or a mobile application, KnockoutJS enables you to take full advantage of HTML5 and JavaScript while working in any mainstream browser.

- Quick Summary:
- The Denver Study Group gathers developers together on a series basis in a 'book club' format, but in our case it is a 'video club' format. We watch and study high quality video training courses at home/work/wherever on our own time and then we meet once a week to discuss the videos for that week and help each other with questions and answers. It's all very casual. There is no instructor teaching us, other than the video instructors. There are no speakers and no prepared presentations or slides, but there is a moderator to help keep each meeting moving along -- Study Group members are the primary talkers.
