It’s been a long time since I’ve actually been on here teaching you something; 9 months since my last actual tutorial and really useful article. Sorry about that! I’m trying to get back on track now though. You should see much more frequent posting and hopefully some very useful posts. Anyway, this tutorial is about a great idea I implemented at work that involved the Adapter and Facade patterns. After using these patterns in this way, I have a much deeper respect for them and I want you to share that repect, so let’s take a look at some awesome ways/reasons to use them!
You all know that this site has been relatively inactive for quite a while. Well, I’m here to let you all know that big things are coming in the future. I wish I could say they will be coming soon, but until the book I’ve been writing it finished, I won’t be able to provide much, if any, content here for you all. Coming in early 2014, though, everyone should be happier. Here’s an update on the future of this blog.
Hi everyone! It’s been nearly two months since I’ve written my own post. This is pretty much unacceptable, but I do have some good excuses. Are you willing to listen to them? Or are you just gonna ignore this? Whatever, either way I don’t care too much. I just want to give an update on what is going on around here so you know what to expect and aren’t disappointed when you don’t see anything going on.
TodoMVC is a place where a large number of people have turned in examples of building the exact same Todo web application while using different MV frameworks (and even some non-MV frameworks). Why? So that developers can come explore the code and decide for themselves which libraries and frameworks look best to them. For those wishing to explore the MV* landscape, this is can be a huge help for getting a quick look each framework.
For a while, I’ve been thinking about how best to handle showing modal dialog boxes for my applications while utilizing Backbone views. A lot of interesting ideas passed through my head, but none of them seemed exactly right. Then I saw a post by Derick Bailey where he described how he uses Marionette’s Regions to handle the work. His post is a bit on the old side and Regions have changed a bit since, so I decided to look into how to do it myself.
Hey everyone. I’m sorry that I’ve been neglecting you all so much. I can’t believe it’s been two months since I last posted something on here. In short, I’ve been very busy. I’ve written several articles for other blogs, and that’s actually what this post is all about. If you’re not following some of these blogs, you may have been missing out on some of my work. So here’s what I wrote in my absence from this website.
Hey everyone! Backbone 1.0 has been released! I just happened to pop by their site and see that 1.0 is official, so I have no idea how long it has been out. Why didn’t anyone tell me?!?!? Anyway, there may be some of you out there wondering what this new version brings and how they can update their apps to bring in all the new awesomeness. Well, let’s take a gander at this new stuff.
