Making Sense of JavaScript Using Backbone & Requirejs

JavaScript can often feel like a free-for-all. The past few years have brought us amazing tools such as jQuery, Backbone, Requirejs, and more, which we can leverage to bring some sanity to our front-end applications.

This talk will set you on a path you may not have thought possible with JavaScript – clean, well-organized code, separated into views, data models, and other modules where dependencies are clearly defined and laid out in front of you. You don't need to be a JavaScript "ninja" to start kicking serious butt on the front-end. Just an hour or two of dedicated training."
