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

If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!

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.
