The Web Apps are here!
Drupal's mastered the back-end. Now it needs a front-end JS framework to help with building dynamic user interfaces in the browser. jQuery alone doesn't cut it.
To the rescue come Backbone.js and Ember.js: popular, powerful, lightweight, and fun MVC-like JS frameworks.
This presentation will include a discussion of basic web application development principals, demonstrate how to move data between Drupal and your webapp using Services or RestWS, introduce and contrast Backbone.js and Ember.js, and walk-through examples of each in action.
There may also be a short demo of the new kid on the block: Meteor.js.
