    Trying to wrap my head around the different data access methods. I have read all the docs on datasouce and mvvm but still am a little confused.  I know mvvm is a pattern but its not just code seperation as in the examples mvvm is used for dataaccess without using a datasource.

    Are datasource and mvvm two different approaches to working with data?
    So you could use a datasource and templating for method 1
    or Mvvm for method 2

    I have read a forum where someone asked about using a datasource with mvvm why would you want to?

    A datasource contains part of mvvm because it has the model as part of itself.

    Just trying to pick one method for development and stick with it but not sure which one to go with.

    Also in Mvvm you have all the different  binding methods that are a bit confusing such as html element binding or attribute binding are these to different approaches where you just need to pick either html or attribute?

    I find this somewhat confusing as well.  I'd love to see more Kendo MVVM examples.
