Start Free and then Scale

You have the latest and greatest idea for a web application. You tell your friends and colleagues, and put together a small team to get the idea rolling. Your programmer, a Ruby on Rails guy, develops a prototype of the web application that works on his machine. You want access to it to show it off, and put it in front of users to get feedback.

Even though you believe in your idea, there's a part of you that's not "all in". You…

The front-end framework of choice for MVC 4 web applications seems to be Knockout.js.  It's fairly robust and easy to add/remove from projects via NuGet and provides an MVVM feel much like Silverlight or WPF.
