Get your geek on with this post from SRT’s Dennis Burton:
Customers expect their websites to be alive with content. They have a dynamic business and they expect their web applications to reflect this. If you are a web developer with the ASP.NET stack in your tool belt, the Knockout.js and SignalR libraries are available to make developing these dynamic applications easier. These libraries handle much of the DOM manipulation and low level communication details so you can get on with adding business value instead of worrying about plumbing. This screen cast series will give you an in-depth introduction to using Knockout.js, SignalR, and git deployment to the new Windows Azure Website platform.
