The arrival of requestAnimationFrame gives browsers the ability to throttle animations to save them from devouring system resources, especially when they aren’t actually being shown on the screen. Knowing this, we need to learn how to use it and then actually start utilizing this new tool for the benefit of our users. For this very reason, I decided to make this short video tutorial explaining how requestAnimationFrame can be used in the animations on your applications.

Part 4: Backbone.js Collections Video Tutorial is here now. We’ve already discussed models, views, and routers in Backbone.js so far, but now we’re on to collections. Collections are pretty much exactly what their name implies: collections of models. Many times, data is displayed in lists, not just singular items. This is where collections come in - to keep every model in order and synchronized with the database on the back end.
Last week you saw a video tutorial on using Models in Backbone.js. This week we’ve moved right along to part 2: learning about Views in Backbone.js. As usual, Backbone.js has made things super simple, yet you get a lot for how little code you write. You’ll see how to attach events (super easy) and utilize models (also super easy) to give your views some data to work with.
