Beginning Backbone.js is your step-by-step guide to learning and implementing the Backbone.js library. Backbone.js is one of the most popular JavaScript libraries among web developers, used to create modular, single-page web apps. This book takes you from downloading Backbone.js and its dependencies all the way to using more advanced libraries to structure your application architecture, and everything in between.

With a real-world, practical approach, you will learn how you can integrate Backbone.js into the center of your JavaScript stack, and create scalable applications. James Sugrue shows you how to implement all aspects of templating, really work well with RequireJS, and fully understand Grunt and all its plug-ins. Armed with this knowledge you'll be able to architect a continuous integration system that is key to real-world applications.
With the explosion of JavaScript-based applications on the web, the need for more structured approaches to code management is more important than ever. Backbone.js helps create applications that separate models from views, enabling developers to avoid spaghetti code. Beginning Backbone.js will gently guide you into this amazingly powerful library, and help you ramp up to building professional applications. Integrate Backbone.js into your work today.
