Description

If you are building an HTML Single Page Application, hybrid HTML installed mobile app, or just a web page that presents a lot of data that the user will be editing, you need to be able to retrieve and manipulate data on the client side in JavaScript. You'll need to query web services to retrieve the data for presentation, let the user edit the data, and push those changes to the server. And if you are going for a rich, stateful, interactive user experience, you won't want to be doing full page post backs to get that done. To work with the data on the client side, you'll need change tracking and validation of edits, the ability to filter, sort, and page data from the client side. You might need to work with that data offline as well. Breeze.js is a JavaScript library that does all of that for you. Breeze lets you quickly develop a good layered architecture on the client side in JavaScript, acting as a data layer, repository, or data gateway for your client side code. This course will walk you through all of the core features of Breeze. You'll learn how to execute queries from your client side JavaScript to retrieve data for presentation, work with the cached data on the client side, enable rich editing scenarios, handle changes to the data client side, validate that data, and send changes back to the server side. You'll see how to set up the services using ASP.NET Web APIs and how to work with OData services.
