This Meetup is past

Details

WordPress 3.5 is the first version of WordPress to include Backbone.js - a powerful and popular Javascript framework for taming your Javascript. With Backbone.js, your data can be encapsulated into models and collections that are then exposed to the DOM through views - views which automatically update as your data changes - with out-of-the-box integration to RESTful APIs and more.

We're excited to have Allen Snook (http://www.allensnook.com/) and Beau Lebens (http://dentedreality.com.au/), from Automattic's Team Social, tell us about some of their recent work with Backbone. They'll also walk us through an example plugin that you can use as a springboard for developing your own Backbone.js savvy extensions to WordPress.

Note: Due to limited space, we're capping signups to 70. If you RSVP and realize later you can't make the meetup, please change your status so someone else can attend.
