Note: This is a study group that provides an environment for coders to work on their own within a group. We will be following a course and it’s up to you to stay on track - there will be no one teaching us.
Details - Week 1
As noted in task #1 of the roadmap, there will be a fair amount of reading before we can dive into the nuts and bolts of Backbone.js, so keep that coffee handy.
We’ll be reading through these three blog posts:
It may be beneficial for you to run the examples in the reading, so remember to bring your laptop. If we finish in time, we can begin following the tutorials listed in task #2
There are 10 task points listed in the roadmap, so a safe plan of attack would be to do 1 task per week. We may finish early some weeks and can get started on the next task, but everyone learns at their own pace, so don't be frustrated if you fall behind schedule.
It's fine to skip a week here and there but remember, it's up to you to stay on track and keep moving through the course.
I expect to take a break after week 5 to let ourselves relax.
If you have questions or run into problems while working on a task, don't be afraid to speak up! Odds are someone else is having trouble too. Between all of us, we can conjure up an answer.
Here's what you'll need:
- A laptop
- Developing Backbone.js Applications book, by Addy Osmani
- A code editor (Sublime Text, Coda, VIM, etc.)
