      Great workshop! Encompasses well the important JS MVC issue.

      Good time partition between hands-on and theory that was balanced with the variance in the audience. The speakers' cooperation and alterations between Yuval and Oren was remarkable.

      I hope that there will be a further TT on backbone.

      Thanks

      did the meeting start? will it be still productive if i come in ~30mins? around 5:45-6:00 ?

    • Paker

      I think if you come at 5:45-6:00 you'll miss only the intro.

    Hi all.
    In contrary to the title of this meetup, this Thursday's workshop is going to be about Javascript Development - an introduction to Backbone.js.
    Please make sure to have the required - according the description - so you make the best out of this workshop.

    Just as a teaser - we're not going to overview or develop the TodoMVC app - but rather a completely original new app.

    We strongly recommend to have Google's Chrome for this workshop.

    Bring your laptops.

    See you in Thursday.
