Developer: WordPress Loves Backbone JS

This Meetup is past

56 people went


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 ( and Beau Lebens (, 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.
