Introduction to Backbone.js//TECH 259

Tim Ruffles, Senior Front End Web Developer

Tuesday, June 19th  from 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm.

Take your front-end skills further and build web applications using Backbone.js. Single page apps are everywhere, and since Gmail, people expect fast, rich applications online. Backbone.js and MVC gives you the structure you'll need to handle the complexity inherent in fantastic user experiences. Javascript is letting everybody create amazing apps on the web - join in!

You'll learn:

- how to get setup with Backbone
- how to get your head around MVC
- steps to turn a traditional HTML, CSS and $BACKEND app into a fast, modern single page app
- how to keep the web interactions your users expect

This is an intermediate level class, aimed at those with existing HTML, CSS and Javascript skills looking to free themselves from the backend and build apps in the client.

Tim Ruffles loves building things with Javascript and Ruby for startups. He's currently working with Arachnys, building a PhantomJS based scraper backend. Before that he built Picklive's real time game clients using Backbone.js and Coffeescript. He contributes to open source tools such as Sinon.js and is passionately a polyglot programmer.
