Future of Web Apps London 2012

by Andy Appleton

I’m excited to be speaking at FOWA London in October this year! I’ll be delivering a talk on Backbone.js application structure so if you’re thinking of coming along you can check it out on Tuesday afternoon.

Here’s the summary…

The Modern JavaScript Application

Backbone is an awesome JavaScript library which provides just enough application structure to allow us to make our own design decisions. It isn't a full application framework and much of the plumbing required to use it as one is left up to us.

But what should that extra plumbing look like? And how can a client side application grow and still remain organised and sane?

We'll talk about lessons learned the hard way and ways to make life simpler and focus on the app rather than the framework. We'll also look at all the auxiliary benefits of taking the time to structure our apps in a clean modular fashion.
