Knockout.js is a pure JavaScript framework for implementing a Model-View-ViewModel (MVVM) web application. Since it is based on JavaScript, the framework is technology-agnostic and can be deployed on top of any server-side technology. In addition, Knockout functions in most mainstream browsers. 

The underlying viewModel layer handles data operations, while the view layer is automatically updated utilizing an implementation of the observer pattern. Knockout truly shines when the viewModel layer becomes larger and manipulating page elements directly with jquery becomes cumbersome. For the demonstration, we’ll implement a simple family budgeting tool that will update calculations dynamically based on user input.

I’m primarily a .NET developer with interests in JavaScript and Oracle. I’m passionate about good software craftsmanship and test-driven development, and I’m always trying to keep up with the latest trends in the .NET world. I’ve lately become interested in Ruby and Ruby on Rails, and am slowly plowing through the fundamentals of the languages.
