Join us for a tour of a real-world JavaScript application. For the best part of a year, the team at Brandwatch have been rewriting their legacy JavaScript front-end, relying heavily on Backbone, RequireJS and Jasmine to get the job done, as well as some NodeJS magic.

Learn the tools and concepts behind these new shiny frameworks, as well as what lessons were learned from maintaining a legacy application collapsing under the weight of its own design choices.

Steve Mason (@spmason) is a JavaScript Developer at Brandwatch. He's a regular contributor to various open source projects and is preparing to release Brandwatch's first proper JavaScript library - tabler.
