    George did a great job of walking through the basics of Backbone and introducing us to the important, more advanced topics that are needed for building real-world user interfaces. Great presentation!

    Still trying to get ahold of the right people at Corvisa so that NVISIA can sponsor the pizza?
    Otherwise just polishing up the presentation!

    My apologies to everyone who has already RSVP'd. Our presenter had some extenuating circumstances come up and can no longer present, luckily George has an awesome presentation on Backbone to take it's place!
