On Monday May 5th we're hosting a a workshop on how to organize your JavaScript using a templating library. This will be a code along workshop presented by Dev Bootcamp's very own alumni coach Sam Samskies, with an introduction to Underscore and Backbone. Attendees should have a working knowledge of JavaScript and jQuery and the event is free and open to the public.

    I put the code up from the app I built here:

    I posted some recommended links in the README if you'd like to dig deeper into Backbone. Any feedback on the session can be sent directly to me at [masked]. This was the first time for me doing a demo on Backbone / Underscore, so I'd definitely be interested on how I could improve the session if we do it again. It's always hard to figure out if the material is too easy or too much. If you want more events like this to happen, just ask. :)

      Thank you Sam! It was a nice intro to Backbone and Underscore but it was a little too fast for me personally. I would be interested if you plan to give a longer workshop on this same topic.

    Nice "mini" intro to Backbone and Underscore, using modular Js. Good examples given as well. Thanks to Sam.

    The first line of this meetup's description says "Wednesday May 5th" instead of Monday.

    Just to be clear. This is going to be a very basic intro. As far as Backbone goes, we'll probably only go over usings Backbone.Views at a basic level. I think we'll save the Models, Collections, Router and all that other good stuff for another day. It's a little overwhelming to try and digest everything when starting with Backbone. If you want to code along, please make sure you come with a boilerplate index.html file ready to go.
