Digesting JavaScript MVC - Pattern Abuse Or Evolution?

June 12, 2012

In my talk from London Ajax, we'll explore the current state of MVC in the JavaScript community, how Smalltalk-80's MVC differed and whether modern frameworks abuse (or evolve) the MVC pattern. We'll also look at a framework that tries to stick more closely to Smalltalk MVC and close up with a panel discussion.

Note: The above deck is a slightly updated version of the slides presented at the talk, but should you wish to view the recording it's available below. I only had about an hour to get the slides together as this was last notice, so my apologies if it isn't polished!.
