Understand Models, Events, Views and More
The core of Backbone.js is representing your data through Models which can be created, validated, destroyed, and saved to the server, and Views that display the model’s state and respond to changes. So after a quick introduction, this is what you’ll learn first.
Having laid that foundation, you’ll move onto the other important concepts of Backbone such as Events, namespacing, templating, routing, and much more. You’ll then build a guestbook app and style it to perfection with Bootstrap. Additional resources and hands-on tutoring will help you every step of the way, no matter what your skills or experience level.
By the end of the course material, you’ll be well equipped to use Backbone for developing your own web apps, and will have a greater understanding of how frameworks can elevate your developing skills (and make your life a whole lot less stressful, too).
Although intended for IT professionals, hobbyists are more than suitable for taking this course too. Some experience in creating web UIs with JavScript tools would be an advantage, as would programming with a common object-oriented or scripting language. However, you don’t need any Backbone experience whatsoever. We’ll teach you everything you need to know!
