Pair Coding With KnockoutJS

Wednesday, February 3 2013 javascript tekpub

I was lucky enough to get some help from Ryan Niemeyer (KnockoutJS core contributor) recently, and, like I do, I asked if I could record it. I love stuff like this: I need this to work well for the Real World, and I want to do it right.

Most of us can figure out what we're trying to do with a new toolset - it's all about reading the docs and playing around until the philosophy of the thing creeps its way in and the tool begins to fit our hand just a bit better.

Every now and again, though, you're reminded just how much you don't know. That was the case when I asked
Ryan Niemeyer to take a look at the Knockout Cart that I open sourced from Tekpub's codebase. I was proud of that thing but I also knew it needed a little help.

As with so many things - I was in a hurry, it worked, I felt like it was a decent initial release, etc. Anyway, Ryan joined me and from that we have our latest video on Tekpub:

This one is wall-to-wall coding, and Ryan doesn't miss a trick. Great stuff, and I was happy to be a part of it! You can watch the whole thing up at Tekpub
