1.1 Introduction

There are several great front end libraries that you can use when creating modern web apps. They all have their strengths and their weaknesses, but they're all really great choices. In this course, we're going to look at one of my favorites, Backbone. Hi, and welcome to Getting Started with Backbone. I'm Andrew Burgess, and I'll be your instructor for this course. This course will be all about Backbone.js. We'll look at each of the components of Backbone and how they work, and even how to modify Backbone a little bit. If you've ever used Backbone before, you'll soon be comfortable with making your own Backbone applications from scratch. If you aren't familiar with Backbone, I hope you'll pick up a few tricks that will make it even more useful to you in your development work. Before we get started, I want to point out that Backbone is a very unopinionated framework. There's so many ways to do pretty much everything. We'll try to explore both the common conventions and a few other alternatives, but do feel free to experiment with different patterns and techniques so you get a better feel for what backbone can do. All right, so when you're ready, let's get started with the first lesson.
