Event: Edinburgh 09/Oct/2012 – Single Page Application Development with backbone.js and Simple.Web

With the rise of smarter browser, single page applications are becoming more popular. In this session we will look at creating a full client side application with and without backbone.js, and use Simple.Web to run the server-side part of the application.

Simple.Web
A lightweight, object-oriented (Model-View-Handler) framework for modern web development in .NET

Simple.Web Design Goals

  • Keep it simple;
  • It should be ridiculously easy to do TDD and/or BDD;
  • Support asynchronous, non-blocking handling of requests;
  • Make it easy to build a proper RESTful, hypermedia-driven application and services, including supporting content-type negotiation for all requests, including HTML;
  • Be really open and extensible, because if people can write plug-ins and add-ons easily, I don’t have to build all that stuff in.

Backbone.js
Backbone.js gives structure to web applications by providing models with key-value binding and custom events, collections with a rich API of enumerable functions, views with declarative event handling, and connects it all to your existing API over a RESTful JSON interface.
