In the spirit of trying out new and interesting Javascript frameworks, and just new technologies in general, this week I take Knockout.js for a spin and it is not bad. Knockout.JS follows an MVVM pattern (Model-View-ViewModel) unlike other Javascript frameworks which follow the MVC pattern. Knockout relies on observables and a declarative binding syntax on your front-end. Which essentially means that a variable or property can notify a DOM element when it has changed state, which, if you've worked on front-end is pretty useful.
