VanJS: Backbone and JavaScript Puzzles

VanJS is back for July, with two great topics.

Michael Yagudaev: Backbone in Multipage Apps - Overcoming Challenges

"Backbone.js is a MV* framework that can help you make your code more maintainable, predictable and flexible. Learn how to incorporate backbone.js into your application step by step while keeping your application as simple as possible. Being able to grab only the pieces you need is backbone's true strength."

Charles Bihis: JavaScript Puzzlers - Puzzles to Make You Think (and Write Fewer Bugs)

"Stay alert and try to solve these 'simple' JavaScript puzzles designed to demonstrate some of the more obscure 'features' of the language. Try your best to answer them! But be careful — the solutions aren't as easy as they look. Learn these puzzlers so you can avoid making the same mistakes in your own code."

We are in theatre 1900, the Fletcher Challenge Theatre, at SFU Harbour Centre. The event time is 6:30.

    Hi, was anyone able to record Michael's talk on BackboneJS in Multipage Apps? I'm going through his slides right now and a video (or even audio) would be great for further clarification.

      Hit me up on here or Twitter @yagudaev if you have any questions. Don't believe there is a recording :(

      Hi Michael, thanks for replying to my comment. I was researching js MVC frameworks for multi page sites and I came across your slides. I was able to follow up until the templating section. I should probably look into mustache so I can make sense of it

    You can find the slides from my backbone talk here: http://www.slideshare.net/MichaelYagudaev/vanjs-backbonepowerpoint?utm_source=ss&utm_medium=upload&utm_campaign=quick-view. Hope you enjoyed it and learned something useful, I sure enjoyed sharing what I learned about BB over the years.

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    More puzzlers at wtfjs.com, not always with answers

    Puzzles were fun, backbone.js talk was a little dense but good practical stuff.

    I put what I remembered from the puzzles into a gist: https://gist.github.com/dpogue/5985869

    The puzzlers presentation was my favourite JS talk to date. Pure JS quirkiness - super fun, great explanations. I would totally attend more puzzle nights. Also, thanks to all that came out afterwards - great conversation, and awesome to meet new people.

    The backbone part could have been little slow-paced. Really liked the Puzzlers part. :)
