- Build rich client applications with Backbone.js
- Build Single Page Applications with Backbone.js
We cover what Backbone is and what you can do with it. We also touch on MVC and Single Page Applications architectural styles.
We cover the basic building blocks of Backbone.js applications and what they are used for: Events, Models, Collections, View and Routers.
We see a real-world example of an application built with Backbone.js along with a quick technical analysis of its underlying architecture. You'll learn how various building blocks of Backbone can be used in a real-world scenario.
In this course, I'll take you on a step-by-step journey to learn Backbone from novice to ninja. You'll learn everything you need to know to build structured and maintainable real-world applications with Backbone.
We start with the big picture
You'll learn the basic building blocks of Backbone and what they are used for. Then, I'll show you a real-world example of an application built with Backbone and explain how those building blocks work together in action.
Then we start learning Backbone.js from scratch
Once you get the big picture, we start learning Backbone in a practical, hands-on way from scratch. Lectures are short, concise and up to the point, without wasting your time. I hate courses that waste students' time (with too much rambling) and I've done my best to make sure I won't waste your time in this course!
Each section includes:
- An introduction that tells you what you're gonna learn
- A few lectures, each teaching you new concepts, in a step-by-step fashion
- A cheat sheet for you to quickly review what you've learned
- A mini project or assignment for you to apply what you've learned
Next we get into the real-world challenges
Once we cover the fundamentals of Backbone, then we'll cover unit testing and modularising the code. You'll learn the basics of RequireJS and Jasmine.
And finally build an application from scratch
In the last section, we'll build an application with Backbone in an iterative way. With every iteration we enhance our app in a baby-step fashion. The before and after source code for each lecture is available for you to download to review or to complete on your own.
I'll share with you other tips to make you a better web developer
I've been a web developer since 2000. In the last section, I'll share with you lots of other tips on usability, productivity, clean coding, object-oriented programming, HTML, CSS, a little bit of security and many other things. These supplementary materials help you become a better web developer.
I'll show you many real-world examples
Throughout the course I touch on some popular web sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Four Square and Bitly and explain how you can make something like them with Backbone. So, by the end of this course, you'll have a good and in-depth understanding of Backbone and how to use it in building real-world applications.
