Sidney Maestre has spent several years building HTML5 and native mobile apps and sharing his knowledge with other developers.
Seeing a lack of meetups dedicated to non-native mobile development, Sidney formed, BAM!, Bay Area Mobile, a meetup focused on jQuery Mobile, Sencha, jQtouch and other non-native mobile technologies.
With the release of jQuery Mobile, Sidney has spent much of 2011 focused on learning and speaking about the technology. This includes speaking at HTML5 DevConf, Adobe MAX and Silicon Valley Code Camp. He is often called up at eBay as an internal expert on the subject. 2011 also saw the beta release of RaffleSwag, for conducting raffles through a mobile phone. Sidney chose jQuery mobile for it's broad support of different platforms and browsers.
Sidney is the former Platform Evangelist with StackMob. StackMob helps mobile developers be more productive by providing cloud based backend services.
This Backbone.js tutorial is designed to take you through the basic concepts of backbone.js. The Backbone.js tutorial includes:
Version 4 - updated for Backbone.js 1.0.0 and StackMob 0.9.1
We'll review the agenda for the backbone.js + StackMob course. You'll also see the final app we will build in this course.
Let's review what the Model-View-Controller Pattern is, why we would use it and how it's used in a backbone.js application.
A quick look at how to include the backbone.js library in your html project.
Let's look at how Collections hold one or more model instance and how you can loop over your collection instance to display data.
We'll review the concept of Views in backbone.js. This will include how the "el" is defined. How to initialize variables and call methods when creating your view and some best practices for rendering your view.
In this section, we review why you might want to use templates and how you can incorporate them into your views.
In this section, we'll look at the router and how StackMob uses it to maintain the application state.
In a course like this, the example code should serve as a starting point to really understand the topic. The final example in this course is critical, as it ties everything together in something close to a real-world application. However, the example is broken. It depends on the StackMob service, which no longer exists. I feel a bitted ripped off, as I had come to the course expecting it to be free (the instructor references it in a youtube video), found I had to pay for it, then found that an important part of the course is broken. I can't see paying for longer, more expensive courses from udemy.com if they are willing to charge for broken courseware.
Un inglés muy claro. Explicado todo de manera cristalina. Me ha encantado.
The course is simple and easy to follow. After reading all documents and I was overwhelmed with information this video broke the information down into bits .
Not a bad course, I almost stayed awake lol. Maestre does a great job at showing us how to deploy a database app using StackMob and exposing you to backbone,JS, underscore.JS and require.JS
A pesar de que no es muy amplio enseña todo lo necesario para hacer una buena aplicación usando Backbone.
