Introduction
[Autogenerated] I'm Rob Connery and welcome to play by Play here at Portal site. Our play by play productions put you in a chair right next to an expert in the field so you can see how they get their work done when confronted with a singular problem or task. These productions air free form an uncut, and we try not to spend much time on explanations. We go full throttle to get the problem solved. The goal of these courses is for you to see how experienced coders solve problems, tools they use and how they think about software development. This differs from a typical, more structured course of parasite, but we think you'll enjoy the less structured, more informal setting. This material can be relatively advanced a times, and we may not slow down to explain ourselves. So I encourage you to stop and re watch the video if you find yourself getting lost. Hey, this is Scott, handsome man, and I'm here on full throttle with Rob Connery. And today we're gonna put Rob through the wringer. He and I were talking about this, uh, this little app called simple cart Js. This is something that I noticed in the my wanderings around the Internet, and I sent it over to Robin's that this is a really cool open source Java script shopping cart. You should implement this on tech bug and Rob took a look at it and there were good things. There are bad things, but he felt that it was really opinionated. And when he tried to integrate simple cart into tech bub, he found that it was forcing him to work a certain way. And we got to talking and the the thought was had that maybe we could put together our own shopping cart a little, a little bit less opinionated, using just knock out. And ah might learn a lot while we're doing it. So, Rob, let us make a shopping cart and Java script using knockout. I don't know how comfortable I am with you driving this bus. Let's just start with the curve balls right off the bat. There is no bus
