Eventbrite - Intro to Backbone.js Training Workshop

Learn to use the Backbone.js library to organize your JavaScript, simplify data handling, and speed development. Implement Backbone to provide structure to web applications by creating models, collections, and views, and connecting them to your existing API over a RESTful JSON interface.


In the short time since the library was released the Quick Left team has deployed several customer products using Backbone.js. Additionally, our CTO, Sam Breed is currently writing a book on Backbone.js for developers due out later this year. Your instructors will share their experience using Backbone in a variety of applications and contributing to its code base. Have a specific problem you need to solve not covered in the training? Contact us and we can figure it out together.


This workshop will cover the basics of how to best utilize Backbone, from getting up and running to organizing large JavaScript applications. Additionally, attendees will learn how (and when) to leverage Backbone within their projects and best practices for building applications.


Participants will learn to use Backbone to apply web development best practices to the front end of a data rich application. The class format will include hands-on coding and will be limited to 18 attendees.
