All sounds good to me.  We're certainly happy to accept a joint presentation.

Walker: regarding your undying love for Underscore, check out LoDash sometime instead. ;)


Sincerely,

Sounds like a plan to me if the organizers want to run with a backbone.js night.

I don't have much of a summary as I was expecting to have some time to come up with what I would talk about, but I was also thinking really basic. Such as:

- Deciding when to make a separate view.
- Making re-usable views.
- Moving view logic from child views to parent views with event delegation.
- (aside) Show how awesome $.Deferred is.
- Basic, basics like why you'll probably only need one router.
- Admit my undying love for underscore.js

Let's see what the group organizers decide then organize off the list if they want to go with it.

This is funny, I was just about to suggest doing a talk as well about BackboneJS, providing a moderately-opinionated approach to how things can/should be structured, how to unit test it, etc and was going to solicit the group for someone to pair with on it.

Objectives:
  • Give structure where none exists
  • Establish conventions and "best practices" to aid in unit-testability and maximum separation of concerns
  • Avoid touching the DOM manually via jQuery and doing things the "backbone way" instead
  • Show a unit test that achieves near 100% coverage of a view, leverages mocks and doesn't ever touch the DOM or call the server.

Would you want to maybe pair up on it/split the time?

If anyone is interested, I'd be happy to run over backbone.js for mere mortals and what I've learned working with backbone.js and friends for the last 5 months. I'm not sure if I would be able to get an hour worth of material together, but I can definitely commit to 30 minutes. -ww
