Backbone.js in production at SoundCloud

A session at Webshaped 2013

Thursday 23rd May, 2013

11:00am to 11:45am (HMT)

Single page JavaScript applications at scale are a relatively new thing and there are many competing approaches, frameworks, and libraries. Backbone.js is a popular and compact library that offers a small, but very central abstraction for dealing with these kind of apps.

What happens when we build a full-fledged, production application on top of this abstraction? Where do the abstractions leak? What kind of things do we have to invent / re-invent? This talk will present an honest retrospective of the last year and a half of bruises, battles, and badges while working with Backbone.js at SoundCloud.
