Building APIs for Backbone Apps

This time around we'll be showing how to build RESTful APIs for backbone using a number of technologies. We'll be comparing a few.

The first half will cover how to set up a basic backbone project using Rails. For you PHP users, we have you covered. There will also be a brief overview in Zend/CakePHP/Grails.


The second half will be covered by Mike McNeil, CTO of Balderdash and their Sails framework.


Sails makes it easy to build custom, enterprise-grade Node.js apps. It is designed to resemble the MVC architecture from frameworks like Ruby on Rails, but with support for the more modern, data-oriented style of web app development. It's especially good for building realtime features like chat.
