Getting Started

Welcome to Advanced Backbone Patterns and Techniques! This course isn’t meant to be an introduction to Backbone, but if you’re familiar with the basics, I think you’ll find plenty to learn.

Note that we’ll be using Node.js with the Express Framework as a back-end in most of these screencasts. You don’t need to know much about them, but if you’re interested, check out the courses linked below:

Hi! I'm Andrew Burgess, a Staff Writer here on Tuts+. I've been hanging around the Tuts+ since early 2009; I discovered the site when I was looking for an introduction to jQuery. Since discovering the site, my web development skills have skyrocketed; I think that's the default experience! Now, I've been writing for Tuts+ regularly since late 2009. I've been working with the computers since I was pretty young, and with the web since 2006. I've dabbled with over a dozen programming languages, but I'm most comfortable in JavaScript and Ruby. Currently, I'm a university student, studying computer science.
