Backbone.js is the key to keeping your JavaScript code neat, and separating your markup from the data powering your web applications. Although it has fantastic server-side capabilities, this course focuses on the most relevant features for front-end developers and web designers that want to learn how to build out their web pages and keep their code organized, move away from the DOM, and use Backbone's useful JavaScript library. Start here and learn how to use models and collections to manage your data, and display it on your web page with views. Then use events and routers to create navigational logic in your web app. Author Kai Gittens shows you just what you need to get up and running with Backbone.js and get the job done.

Topics include:
  • What is Backbone.js?
  • Understanding how MVC libraries work
  • Adding properties to a model
  • Creating a collection of models
  • Adding properties to a model view
  • Loading model data on a web page
  • Configuring routes
  • Finding Backbone resources

Welcome

- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Kai Gittens, and welcome to Up and Running with Backbone.js. Backbone is an excellent JavaScripts library that you can use to write web applications in a neat, efficient manner. I'll use Backbone's models, views and collections to manage my information and to display it on a webpage. And then I'll use events and routers to create navigational logic in my web app. I'll skip over Backbone's more server-related concepts and focus on the key Backbone concepts I need to get the job done.

So let's move towards the point of never ever writing sloppy JavaScript again, and get up and running with Backbone.
