Backbone.js in the Frontend
The benefits of using Backbone are huge when writing complex web apps interfaces. It provides you a way of organizing your code making a clean separation of concerns (MVC), it makes code easier more modular and easier to test, it makes the User Interface more snappy and many other benefits that will be explained during the session. This radically changes the game, logic is in the frontend and the backend takes care of providing JSON-encapsulated data through a REST API.
It will be a practical session, showing demos and explaining how Backbone & friends are changing the way of making web apps. Also Ethan will present how the Backbone module for Drupal can help you to speed up your web app development, so you don't have to re-invent the wheel.
Browsers, web standards, Drupal 8 and user expectations are evolving to support this new paradigm. Disqus, LinkedIn, Basecamp, Trello and many others are already using it. Are you ready?
