Sebastian Slomski – Structuring front-ends with backbone.js

As client side applications become more complicated, organizing and structuring your application is now as important as on the server. Taking the cue from Ruby on Rails and others, new javascript frameworks have begun to spring up using the Model – View – Controller pattern. One of these frameworks is Backbone.js.

Sebastian Slomski works as a Frontend Solution Architect at Catenate. In particular he is focusing on building mobile web apps with Javascript.
