Announcing a new Meetup for The Online ColdFusion Meetup!

What“Using Backbone.js to Build Lightning Fast Mobile&Desktop Apps”, w/ James Brown

Our 6pm (US ET) talk on Thursday May 19 will be Using Backbone.js to Build Lightning Fast Mobile & Desktop Applications”, with James Brown.

TOPIC DESCRIPTION: (provided by the speaker)

We all are familiar with the numerous MVC frameworks available for ColdFusion but what about conventions for your JavaScript code?  A project’s JavaScript code can get out of hand and become unorganized very quickly.  Fortunately, we have tools like Backbone.js to give structure and MVC to our web applications.

In this session, we’ll look at how to use Backbone.js to populate and save models, utilize and re-use views, properly use pub/sub, include jQuery templates, interface with 3rd party APIs and build mobile applications.  We’ll also look at lots of code and examples.  Backbone.js will change the way you develop and architect your web applications; you aren’t going to want to miss this presentation.

LOGGING IN: When you login to the Connect room (theexperts.acrobat.com/cfmeetup link above) to view the meeting, PLEASE USE THE “LOGIN AS GUEST” option, and USE YOUR NAME, but do NOT attempt to use your meetup.com username/password or any Connect account. Just sign in as a guest.

RSVP, but only if coming: We do appreciate folks RSVPing if they plan to come (using the link on this email or at the meetup site), though it’s not mandatory and it’s not a commitment. But there’sno need to RSVP if you can’t make it let alone explain why you can’t. With over 2,500 members, no worries. 🙂

FEEDBACK/MEETING DISCUSSION: Members will receive an email after the meeting or can click a link on the event page to offer. Note also the meeting-specific discussion area there at the bottom, in addition to the one-chance feedback feature on the right. Feel free to engage in discussions about the meeting topic.

ADD THIS TO YOUR CALENDAR: Want to add this event to your own personal calendar? After logging in here, you’ll see an option at the top of the event page, just below the event title,  saying, “Add to my calendar”, which offers calendar downloads for Outlook, iCal, Google, and Yahoo calendars. (Note that the calendar entry created will show the event taking 2 hours. That’s a default that meetup.com has chosen, which I can’t change. The meetings are generally about an hour, though often go as much as 30-45 minutes longer with Q&A and chat.)
