Backbone.js and rails

"Mike Wisian and Mike Tierney, Front-End Developers for doxo, will be
talking about their experience in adding Backbone.js as part of a feature
in an existing Rails application, and how they used a prototype to solve
some of the challenges before ever starting work on the application.
Backbone.js is a library that makes it easier to write and maintain
Javascript-heavy applications by providing an MVC structure and a rich API
that interacts with your application using a RESTful JSON interface."


This meet up event will be at:

601 Union Street Seattle WA 98101.  

51st floor, conference room 5121/5122.

Street parking may be available but I've been advised that convention center parking might work best if you're looking for a garage.

Hope to see you all there.
