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.

Intermediate to advanced JavaScript knowledge is assumed. You should be familiar with most jQuery APIs and understand the MVC pattern either in concept or through using another framework.

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

What do I need to bring?

In addition to your own laptop with WiFi, we'll send you a list of suggested reading and tools you'll need to have configured on your machine prior to the start of the intensive.

I'm hungry, send help!

Coffee, a light breakfast and catered lunch will be provided on Saturday and Sunday during each weekend. In addition, the HUB is located in the International District of Seattle which has a fantastic range of dining options.
