Backbone.js on Rails

Time & Place: 6.12.2012, 7pm - 9pm at Hacklab KIKA

In this presentation Peco Danajlovski will introduce you to Backbone.js and how to use it with Ruby on Rails web framework to build complex user interfaces.

Backbone.js is a light Javascript library based on MFC architecture that will help you stop writing javascript spaghetti. It was originally extracted from a Rails application ( Document Cloud), which means it’s easy to integrate it with Rails.

Peco will also explain how to create JSON APIs in Rails and connect client-side (Backbone) Models to sync with them. He’ll use CoffeeScript to write Javascript. And, he’ll also talk about RABL (Ruby API Builder Language), a templating system for generating JSON, XML and other data formats.
