homepage-exampleSteve Sanderson has created an interesting MVVM JavaScript library for ASP.NET MVC called Knockout. Yes, you read that right! MVVM on the client, MVC on the server, living together happily may make a more enjoyable development experience. All this plus HTML, data binding, jQuery, text boxes over data, ASP.NET and more.

I thought there might be some utility to using MVVM within a web application. A lot of people leverage a "front controller" design with MVVM on the desktop/silverlight (see nRoute from Rishi Oberoi and Magellan from Paul Stovell for examples of frameworks that implement this architecture). So having ASP.NET MVC with the controller sending a ViewModel to the View follows logically.

Can't wait to listen.
