The "Backbone" Lesson is part of the full, Web UI Architecture course featured in this preview video. Here's what you'd learn in this lesson:
Backbone is an MV* framework focused mostly on logic and very little on the DOM. It relies on Underscore for many utilities. Models in Backbone are built for inheritance and can easily be organized into collections. Views contain all the information about where the view is rendered, but the rendering has to be supplied by the developer.
