You can download Supplemental Materials, Lesson Videos and Transcripts from Downloadables (bottom right corner of the Classroom) or from the Dashboard (first option on the navigation bar on the left hand side).
We'll first start by building a project the way you already know how: without an overarching organizational paradigm. Specifically, we'll discuss pain points and difficulties that are easy to run into when you don't use an organizational model. Then, we'll discuss a paradigm that will help us in the future, and we’ll see some examples of that paradigm in action.
We'll spend some time discussing how our new paradigm applies to the project we worked on in Lesson 1. Then we'll rebuild the project with the new organizational paradigm.
Finally, we'll explore how to use KnockoutJS, an organizational library, to organize our code and to reduce the amount of boilerplate code we write. Our resulting application will be well-organized, easy to understand, and extensible.
