Lightning Talk:

Modularized Backbone Apps Part 1: Subviews and messaging

Main Talk:

Backbone.js tricks or treats

By Tiago Garcia

This talk explains some pitfalls, solutions and good practices for common scenarios in Backbone.js. In this talk the audience will learn about Marionette.js, React.js, Epoxy.js and Sinon.JS and how do they solve problems about performance, memory, productivity and code organization.

Tiago Garcia is a Technical Manager at Avenue Code and Technical Leader at, heavily interested in cutting-edge front-end technologies. He is Brazilian, but you don't need to be sorry for Brazil's takedown at the World Cup, that was well-deserved. The World Cup is over and talking about Backbone.js has been much more interesting ever since. You can check out his other talks at and follow him on Twitter at @tiagooo_romero (
