Course Description

This project-based backbone.js tutorial will involve building a real web application using BackboneJS, a framework designed to help you organize code in the browser and manage complex behaviours. We'll be using a simple key/value store, MongoDB and a very lightweight web backend (Ruby Sinatra).

This is an advanced backbone.js tutorial video series and it assumes an understanding of jQuery, and server side web development. The second video in the series touches on how to get going quickly.
