An Introduction to KnockoutJS: Intermission
5/22/2012 1:13 PM
KnockoutJS is taking the ASP.Net world by storm. DotNetNuke 6.2 will include several core features which rely heavily on KnockoutJS. In Part 1 and Part 2 of my Introduction to KnockoutJS series I discussed some of the basics of bindings which are at the heart of KnockoutJS. Later this week, I’ll continue my series on KnockoutJS. In the meantime I wanted to highlight a great learning opportunity for those who are interested in learning how to use KnockoutJS with DotNetNuke. Given its usage in DotNetNuke 6.2 it should come as no surprise that KnockoutJS will be prominently featured at the Charlotte Day of DotNetNuke on June 2nd.
Ian Robinson will present “Building RIch User Interaction with KnockoutJS”. Ian’s session will focus on understanding KnockoutJS and the MVVM pattern along with how we use it in DotNetNuke 6.2.
Charles Nurse will dive deeper into the MVVM pattern in his session “It’s a Knockout !! - MVVM Module Development in DNN 6.2”. In addition, he’ll be showing how KnockoutJS can be used in conjunction with the new Service Framework in 6.2 to build highly interactive modules with a focus on client-side development.
In my session, “Building Single Page Applications with DotNetNuke”, I’ll be focusing on building modules using the Single Page Application (SPA) pattern. I’ll discuss when using this pattern is appropriate and when it is not and then show how DotNetNuke simplifies your job of building SPA based modules.
All-in-all, the Charlotte Day of DotNetNuke will be a great opportunity to get some different perspectives on how to use KnockoutJS with DotNetNuke. Not only will you have an opportunity for learning KnockoutJS but you’ll get first hand information on how to take advantage of all the new social features in DNN 6.2. So what are you waiting for?
