C#er : IMage: Angular: The Modern HTML5 Answer to Silverlight’s MVVM | Looking for LightSwitch information | Scoop.it

First, let me say that I realize Silverlight in no way “owns” the Model-View-View Model pattern. I’ve written on this extensively in my article “MVVM Explained.” However, I believe it gained the most public exposure through various implementations on that platform and this is what led to its adoption on the web. In fact, you might think its strange to think that Microsoft could have possibly influenced the sacred land of open source JavaScript, but if you trace the history of view models you’ll find not only did they segue from WinForms to XAML technologies, but they initially made their way to the web via early data-binding implementations like KnockoutJS.
