Backbone Weekend Intensive
Over the course of one evening and two days, you will learn build a client-side, event driven web application with Backbone under the guidance of world class mentors. The focus of the weekend will be project-based application development designed to prepare you to work independently afterwards.
This is also a great class for beginning Backbone users to hone their existing skills.
The core concepts of Backbone - views, models, collections & routers - will be explained in the context of building an application from scratch, meaning you'll be writing code from the beginning of the course. This will include:
- Backbone's version of MVC
- How to structure your application
- Event driven architecture
- History management and Backbone.Router
- REST APIs and Backbone.sync
- Data modeling
- Templating with Handlebars.js
- Nesting views and rendering collections
- Introduction to modular development
- Testing your application
