JavaScript Underscore.js


Hi I'm Joe Marini and I'd like to welcome you to Up and Running with Underscore.js. This course will give you an introduction to the open source Underscore.js library. We'll start by taking a look at how how Underscore makes common data related tasks such as iterating over a set of data records or filtering big sets of information into to smaller pieces straightforward and easy to accomplish. Next, we'll see how Underscore makes working with built-in Javascript constructs such as arrays and objects painless and simple.

Then we'll move on to using some of Underscore's utilities for making everyday development scenarios easier and more productive. Finally, we'll wrap up by using what we've learned to build a working practical example that demonstrates how to use Underscore to work with data to build a fully interactive experience. If you're ready to start handling data like a JavaScripting ninja, then let's get started with Up and Running with Underscore.js.
