In this session we join Scott Cowan who will shows us how to build a real world application with Backbone.js, RequireJS, Lo-Dash and Aura. Learn how to use the framework used by some of your favourite sites, including Foursquare, Groupon, Basecamp and more.

Prerequisites: You should have some experience with Javascript and jQuery, you'll also need Visual Studio, Git, Chrome, and Fiddler.

Backbone.js

Backbone Is a javascript framework for building a SPA site. It's a powerful, opinionated and easy to test way to build applications. We will cover the core components of Backbone including views, models, collections, routing and event messages. Aura widgetizes Backbone.js and lets you easily reuse components of your site. It also lets you communicate using a pub/sub pattern

RequireJS

Too many HTTP requests will slow down your site. Require is a file and module loader for javascript that lets you separate your code while you develop and deploy with a single optimised file without compromising on speed in production. You can also alias frameworks and easily upgrade or change your dependencies without changing your code (ie: changing from underscore to lodash).

Lo-Dash

Lo-Dash templating and utility framework that you can use with backbone, It is a fork of the underscore framework with speed improvements and lets you chain set operations together in a syntax that's similar to LINQ
