Building MVVM JavaScript Apps for the C# / XAML Developer

Time: 5:30 pm networking & pizza.
         6:00 pm presentations start.


The Model-View-ViewModel (MVVM) pattern is fundamental for WPF and
Silverlight developers. As the world embraces HTML5/JS applications, C#/VB/XAML developers must to learn how to leverage existing skill sets in this new paradigm.

Jason Beres will teach developers how to implement the MVVM pattern in HTML5/JavaScript using the Knockout JS library.
Key topics covered include a review of MVVM Fundamentals, a walkthrough of simple WPF MVVM line-of-business application, an introduction to the Knockout JS library and a walkthrough of an HTML5/JS version of the WPF MVVM line-of-business application.

Previously we have had a few sessions on developing applications with MVVM. (Caliburn.Micro with Ian Randall, WinRT with David Burela, and Jordan Knight showing a MVVM framework he developed for Xamling).
This talk continues that trend showing how to apply it towards web development.

Jason Beres is a Microsoft MVP and is the "Vice President, Developer Tools" at Infragistics.

    I'm someone who does C# on a day-to-day basis and have just recently grappled the world of MVVM in WPF, and Windows Phone. It was interesting to see MVVM in the Javascript world and in particular Knockout.js. It was also great seeing the similarities of MVVM in C# and Javascript, as well as seeing the differences. Great presentation overall.
