Grow Some Backbone

I’ve been looking into Backbone a bit. A great getting started tutorial was recommended to me by my boss.

Check out the tutorial here.

I’ll run through it and put together some notes on what I learned.  One of the first things I noticed was that Backbone didn’t have any templates for views.  It looks I should use Underscore for templating.

Obviously I don’t know anything about Underscore, So I’ll add that to the pile of stuff I need to learn.

I am thinking of making a simple app that pulls from Google’s feed API and do a scrolling news ticker thing.  I’ll make a tutorial and post the code when I get through with it.
