    Hi All,

    Has anyone experienced the Kendo UI from MVVM pattern? I would like to see the pitfalls in this decision. So that I would be ready for the unexpected.

    Thanks for reading

    I've been pleasantly surprised so far actually and have converted from KO

    1. No syntax sugar for like "foreach: " in the markup, you need to use templates\nested templates
    2. No equivalent of $root or $parent in this release...the latest internal implements parent(), but it's not fully working it appears.
    3. No Css binding without a workaround


    1. Everything in the model is an observable by default (so no need for a "mapping" plugin)
    2. Nicer api to work with (IMO)
    3. Seems to render faster
    4. Support, Support, Support.  You have a problem or "how do I" with KO, you have to just hope someone answers you.
