My very first backbone app

At work, we thought we would try to integrate a mini backbone app into the main site. We chose to take the out log in status on the header into a backbone app.

So what is Backbone.js?

Backbone.js is a JavaScript frontend framework that provides structure for your application code, the event-based communication for your application, and the necessary interconnectedness for your data, application logic, and user interface. Simply put, Backbone.js allows us to develop applications much easier and better (more scalable, reusable, and modular code).

What stood out to me straight away is the structure of setting up a Backbone app. As I have been writing php for some time, I am familiar with MVC structure and so I was immediately intrigued. There are many different ways you can design and make your own decisions with the architecture for your app in Backbone.js.

Great reads to get started
