Creating Single Page Web App using Backbone JS

During the third workshop on the topic, we created an application that allows user to select a place on world map, brings photos of interesting venues from FourSquare and shows them in tiled format.

The app is hosted as explore-venues and its complete code is available at Github.

The presentation here helps build/read the code in a systematic way.


  1. Great presentation, wish it was in js instead of cs, I know cs is less code, I just like js

    1. Glad to know that you liked it.
      BTW .... the application is actually in JavaScript. I write in CoffeeScript but compile it to JavaScript before including it in the browser.

      So in the code repository, you have both JavaScript as well as CoffeeScript file. If you like JavaScript more, you can refer to the main.js file.

      Hope this helps.
      If you still have some issues, I can walk you through in a Skype session.
