Backbone.js is a super light framework that allows you to structure your JavaScript codes in an MV* fashion.

    Comments about oreilly Backbone.js Patterns and Best Practices:

    It is a great book for those developers who started with Backbone.js and wants to know about the best patterns he should follow to develop complex single page web applications.

    The book takes us through each component of Backbone.js and list down the common problems developers face throughout development. Then it discusses about the solutions to those problems not only by your own way but also by providing references to the open source plugins that fit the best for that problem. The book also tells how I can use different design patterns to enhance performances of large scale JavaScript applications.

    Overall this book is written in a simple style and is packed with compact examples. It is a must have for every Backbone.js developer.
