Backbone.JS presentation at Phoenix JavaScript Meetup

It’s my pleasure to present Backbone.JS at this evening’s Phoenix JavaScript Meetup.  Backbone is a great library for achieving separation of concerns in client-side code.  It is a great addition to your botique of client-side libraries, offering an a-la-carte, unopinionated framework for pub/sub eventing, declarative DOM event binding, one-way model binding, a great client REST mechanism for data persistence, and routers for “hash-bang” in-page view navigation.  You can get the slides and content here.  Most of the pages work without a server-side data store, so you can safely ignore the node content.  When you’re ready to fire up the full monty, run npm install in the code directory, then node server.js to launch the server, and connect with your favorite browser.  Happy coding!
