In his talk, Rich Web UIs with Knockout.js, Steve quickly summarized the problems Knockout solves and why Knockout is a particularly strong candidate to solve those problems, before working on a shopping cart example to show off how bindings, including custom bindings, work within Knockout.
Some key parts of Todd’s talk include:
- A description of the problem Knockout solves [at 00:41]
- What is Knockout and MVVM? [at 01:38]
- 4 unique things about Knockout [at 03:12]
- Live coding a shopping cart [at 06:02]
- Summary [at 20:15]
Anyone with a further interest in Knockout should check out the project’s homepage and particularly the live Hello World example and interactive online tutorial which guides you through building a Web UI using the MVVM pattern with Knockout.js in an interactive sandbox-style environment.
