The two minute guide to AngularJS for .NET developers

While the allure of writing applications - and not just web sites - in HTML5 and JavaScript reaches a lot of developers, we've experienced that a number of developers are rather frightened by the idea of creating large applications in a dynamic language. In addition to the dynamic nature of JavaScript, the lack of a container-based GUI framework (which isolates causes and effects to individual controls, as it is done in the .NET Framework) and the general overarching flexibility and lack of guiding principles didn't make this environment too appealing for a lot of business developers.

We think that AngularJS can change this and we'd like to present a small sample of AngularJS code, the underlying markup and the resulting mini-application. (We're not going to talk too much about the individual steps in this sample, as this would be the focus of the next chapter.)

Choosing the best strategy for Silverlight developers

Until recently, multiple vendors, including Microsoft, Adobe and Oracle/Sun, were competing to provide rich Internet application (RIA) frameworks for creating applications that could be delivered via the Web. However, this led to some fragmentation of the market. Some of the main challenges of these platforms included the need for special plug-ins, security risks and increased power requirements.

HTML5 has emerged as a standard framework for providing most of the features and functionalities of these RIA frameworks. As a result, vendors like Microsoft have started investing more effort in supporting this vendor-neutral standard. Silverlight has not gone away, but Microsoft is investing more attention in this emerging Web standard, and has advocated various steps developers can take to transition their existing Silverlight applications to HTML5.

Essential Knockout.js, Part 2: Best Practices and More

Essential Knockout.js, Part 2: Best Practices and More | Development on Various Platforms | Scoop.it

The first installment discussed what Knockout.js is, why and how it evolved, and how it fits into Web development. This month, the discussion dives into best practices for Knockout, extending it and creating custom bindings.

To get the most utility out of Knockout's components, the need for the Model-View-ViewModel (MVVM) design pattern must be understood. This architectural pattern arose out of Microsoft's implementation of Martin Fowler's presentation model design pattern to support Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) and Silverlight.
