The Modern JavaScript Application

A session at Future of Web Apps London 2012

Tuesday 16th October, 2012

3:10pm to 3:50pm (GMT)

Head to this session to learn about all of the auxiliary benefits of taking the time to structure your app in a clean modular fashion.

Backbone is an awesome JavaScript library which provides just enough application structure to allow us to make our own design decisions. It isn't a full application framework and much of the plumbing required to use it as one is left up to us. But what should that extra plumbing should look like? And how can a client side application grow and still remain organised and sane?

Andrew will discuss lessons learned the hard way and ways to make life simpler by focusing on the app rather than the framework.
