There’s a new addition to JavaScript that’s going to change everything you think you know about data-binding. It’s also going to change how many of your MVC libraries approach observing models for edits and updates. Are you ready for some sweet performance boosts to apps that care about property observation?

Object.observe() is landing in Chrome 36 beta. 

Object.observe(), part of a future ECMAScript standard, is a method for asynchronously observing changes to JavaScript objects…without the need for a separate library. It allows an observer to receive a time-ordered sequence of change records which describe the set of changes which took place to a set of observed objects.

Think I need a meme. ASP .NET MVC 6 - it is looking more and more like Node.js and Express. That is a good thing, but Microsoft is still playing catch up. Maybe something about how when ASP .NET MVC 6 may eventually be hosted on Linux with Mono, then its transformation to the dark side will be complete and it may rival Node.js.
