Introduction to Backbone.js

  • Mar 11, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Backbone.js is a JavaScript MVC framework that sparked a renewed interest in ways to manage complexity in client-side development.  We'll cover some of the basic pieces of Backbone and look at the Todo example app, talk about Backbone's strengths and weaknesses relative to other options, then work through a practice project.

Aidan Feldman is a full-stack developer doing Ruby and JavaScript at Jux.  When not cranking out open source projects or mustachifying the internet, Aidan can be found performing with various modern dance companies around the city.  He’s the organizer of Hacker Hours, a volunteer with CoderDojo NYC and teaches Advanced Javascript at NYU.

    Curious to know if any attendees tried contacting Bleeding Edge Press regarding the Backbone.js ebook Aidan co-authored. I filled out their contact form a few days ago and haven't gotten a reply.
