I just have to say, I'd love to see the kind of development Ogilvy does if it gets me an office up there ;). All joking aside, Pamela Fox's presentation was chock full of really useful information, and though I was hoping for a little more detail in the Marionette discussion (as I'm currently developing a large-scale extensible app built on top of Marionette), it certainly made its case for the framework, and gave me a bit of confidence that I had chosen well. Also, I'm very much looking forward to backbonerails.com really going live.
I really wanted a longer look at Pamela's slides, and luckily for us she's put them up at http://backbone-3ways.appspot.c... (using the impressive reveal.js ... but speaking of impressive.check out impress.js as well.
Thanks for a great meetup, everyone! It was my first time coming and it was a blast.

Pamela Fox had Vitality in her presentation. Backbone.js integrates with many technologies, including those where Models are on the server side. Marionette JS, while having a cool logo and one-liner, was a little bit of a stiff presentation. Some of the "Bad and Ugly" are simply products of the flexibility and size of Backbone.js Marionette JS is really just a logical conclusion of one company after developing in Backbone.js ~ as Pamela said, it's not one size fits all, it's a very simple and strong foundations, complexity simplified is always an innovation. Coursera.com looks like a great solution, with all the fundamentals in place. How's that for a good Router.
