    Adam Silverstein: Put a Little Backbone in Your WordPress!

    WordCamp Europe 2015Speaker: Adam Silverstein

    July 17, 2015 — Backbone (and Underscore!) are bundled with WordPress – explore how you can leverage their power to deliver complex user experiences while keeping your code organized and maintainable.

    First, we will explore why Backbone is awesome, and what it lets you create is amazing! We will look at some examples of where and how it is used to power web apps and increasingly large areas of the WordPress dashboard. Seeing these incredible user experiences built in Backbone will help get you excited about using Backbone in your next project.

    Next, we will dig into Backbone fundamentals to get a crystal clear understanding of the fundamental concepts underlying Backbone applications: Models, Views and Collections. We’ll look at how these tie to templates, events and routes for rendering, interaction and state handling. We discuss using Backbone in themes and plugins: how to include Backbone, how to interact with the back end to get and put data, including using the new WP REST API. We will cover WordPress specific helper functions that help our Backbone projects.
    Finally, we will explore several very simple Backbone applications that demonstrate interacting with WordPress using the Rest API.
