What is HyperText Markup Language (HTML)?
Cascading Style Sheets aka CSS
HTML and CSS are both fairly simple to learn, so I’d recommend starting with those first. You can read a complete beginner’s guide to HTML here, and a beginner’s guide to CSS here. Once you’ve got to grips with the basics, it might be worth taking a look at some more advanced tutorials that explain some of the more complicated aspects of these languages. The HTML & CSS section on the Tuts+ network is full of great resources, and there are also a few decent books on the subject.
Once you have a good grasp on how jQuery works, take a look at this article which explains how Backbone works. If your interest is piqued by Backbone then I highly recommend reading the official documentation which explains everything in detail (there are also some great tutorials on the Tuts+ site).
What is Backbone?
That’s taken directly from the official documentation for Backbone.js, so feel free to read through it if you want more information about what exactly Backbone does. In this article, I’m going to be assuming that you have a basic understanding of what Backbone is (or at least enough knowledge to understand the code examples), but if there are any questions then feel free to ask in the comments section below the article!
