About this event

Nowadays, we are using JavaScript more and more on our webpages, and that means that we can end up with hundreds or even thousands of lines of JS. If you're not careful, your code can quickly become an unnavigable maze of spaghetti code. Most web developers are now using MVC frameworks to help them modularize their code and better separate the presentation from the data.

In this evening workshop, we'll talk about what MVC frameworks actually are, give an overview of the popular ones out there, and spend most of our time actually getting our hands dirty using MVC concepts and the Backbone.JS framework. This workshop will be taught by Pamela Fox, a product engineer at Coursera.

As a prerequisite, you should be fairly familiar with JS, like by having attended our JS workshop and advanced JS workshops in jQuery and AJAX. Bring a laptop, a charger, and a smile.

If you'd like to attend but cannot afford the cost, please request a GDI scholarship.
