Application Building Patterns with Backbone.js

In this production we build a single page application with BackboneJS that breaks the bonds of the "silly demo." No more To-do lists - we're building an Open Source MongoDB document explorer, a perfect use case for a Single Page App powered by BackboneJS. It also allows us to use Javascript in every part of our application: client, server (using Node), and database! And we're doing it all on Windows 8 with WebMatrix 2.

Description

This is a different kind of production for us at Tekpub. We're building out an application *that we need to use* and we're open sourcing it as well. We use MongoDB quite often - and many times have wanted to work with a MongoDB explorer much like the RavenDB explorer built using Silverlight. We can't stress it enough: this production is about building an app. It starts off explaining concepts, but quickly gets into the crazy-making aspects of working an app with Javascript.
