jQuery Mobile takes the popular jQuery JavaScript library to the next level by providing a unified user interface system across many popular mobile device. But as your mobile app grows in complexity you'll need a strategy for separating your data, views and logic. Especially if multiple developers are working on the same app. I'll give an overview on jQuery Mobile components, then talk about how to use backbone.js for better code organization using the model-view-controller pattern. This talk assumes you know some JavaScript/jQuery, but haven't explored backbone.js yet. You'll walk away with a solid understanding of how backbone.js uses events, models, collections, views,and routes.
