Rapid Web Development with DocPad

A session at CampJS

Saturday 16th February, 2013

1:30pm to 3:30pm (EST)

DocPad is a next generation web framework that brings you all the best practices over the years without all the clutter.

Built on top of Node.js, Express.js, and Backbone.js it is a fantastic architecture to extend as well as a great platform for learning the underlying technologies by dog-fooding them. For instance, you can get started with a pre-made node.js website in a few minutes, hook into the express.js web server to write your custom routes in a few more, and hook into the Backbone.js database to perform advanced queries and content listings in a few more. DocPad is often a lot people's first experience with Node.js, and for some even Web Development in general, they still fly by.

By the end of the workshop, you'll be equipped with the ability to:

* Write your dream website/app in any templating engine, markup language, whatever you wish
* Be able to deploy it anywhere as a static website, or to a node.js web server as a dynamic website
*Write custom routes with express.js, handle form submissions, and query the backbone.js database

Benjamin is founder of BevryMe, DocPad, StartupHostel and HistoryJS. He's an aficionado of JavaScript, Node.js, Open-Source and HTML5.
