6.1 Conclusion

Well, that just about does it for getting started with Backbone. I hope you've learned a lot about Backbone in this course, and that you're well on your way to building your own web applications with Backbone. In conclusion, I wanna give you a couple of links to check out. Of course, the first one is, which is the documentation for Backbone. We covered a lot about Backbone in this course, but there's always a little bit more to learn. So, I recommend you go through the documentation and see if anything catches your eye. Another great way to learn more about Backbone is by reading over the Backbone source code. Here's a really neat page which displays the Backbone source code on the right and the comments about it on the left. Not only will reading through this code give you a better understanding of how Backbone works, but you may actually pick up a few interesting JavaScript tips along the way. I know I certainly have as I've read through this in the past. Now here in tuts+ there are many more Backbone tutorials that you might want to check out. One thing in particular is my Advanced Backbone Patterns and Techniques course. It's a few years old now, but I think you'll still find that there are some interesting ideas and concepts. Some of the libraries that we talk about, like Backbone Marionette, or the Backbone pull-up like Grunt Tool, are probably a little out of date these days, but you still might find something useful here. Finally, let me just mention a book that I wrote. And I hope this doesn't seem too self-serving, but I recently wrote a book for Packt Publishing called Backbone.js Blueprints. There are seven chapters in the book, and in each chapter you build a different web application from start to finish. Each of the seven applications use different techniques and patterns, so you really get a good idea for how flexible Backbone.js is. Well, that's it for me for this course. So, I'll see you later.
