State of the Backbone

Jun 4th, 2012

It may surprise some to find that Backbone.js was released just over a year and a half ago. In that time, Backbone has gained a remarkable reach, and one that stretched beyond our anticipations. As just one example (and there are many examples to be found in the Backbone documentation), last week brought us to BackboneConf in Boston where several hundred developers gathered to discuss Javascript application development.

Jeremy Ashkenas, engineer emeritus of DocumentCloud, opened the conference with the first State of the Backbone keynote. We’ve recorded it for those who weren’t able to join us at BackboneConf.

  1. Thank you for this, I was unable to attend and didn’t know the talks were recorded.

  2. @Brian, unfortunately, there wasn’t an official conference recording, but we did get this one.

  4. After creating a tablet app with Backbone for one of the top 5 banks in Canada, I’ve been taking what we learned, putting it into a Backbone Boiler, with an OOP like Mobile framework.

    Please check out this.

    Thanks so much, for bringing structure to our Javascript.
