A session at DevNexus 2013

Moving logic to the client unlocks unlimited potential, but is a challenging endeavor. In this talk we’ll be covering the use cases for Backbone, and show real world examples. We’ll be covering the tenets of client side MVC development, and what tools and resources you need on the server to make this possible, especially when deploying to production. We’ll also get to see how development with a framework like Backbone changes your applications’ workflow, and we’ll be diving into some of those approaches typical in day to day development.

You should walk away knowing:

Backbone’s role, when to use it, and how it works
Typical challenges you’ll need to overcome
What server side tools are a necessity
Where to go from here

Skill Level: Beginner
