Remember -- somewhat new Location! 2600 Tower Oaks Boulevard, Rockville, Maryland Suite 300 Knock It Out with Knockout - Geoff Snowman

Knockout is a JavaScript framework that makes developing client-side data manipulation code a snap. Knockout implements the Model-View-ViewModel pattern in the browser allowing you to data bind JavaScript objects to DOM elements quickly and easily. In this presentation, Geoff will show several example pages built using Knockout ranging from Hello, World to advanced data binding samples. He'll also talk about approaches for customizing Knockout data binding.

Geoff Snowman, better known as The Notorious D.O.R.K., rose to prominence during the East Coast – West Coast Code Reviews of the late 90s, when he was a member of the .NET posse. He attracted attention with a blend of object-oriented analysis and agile development street cred, illuminated by his uniquely humorous approach to inheritance hierarchies. After a string of number ones on Billboard’s Gangster C# Chart during the 2000s, D.O.R.K. took a break from the industry to focus on other ventures, including needlework and a line of pocket protectors that he designed himself. He’s currently back in the cube building a financial reporting application and living the gangster life. Editor's Note: The Notorious D.O.R.K. demanded full creative control over his bio.
