Is your web app drowning in a sea of JavaScript? Has your client-side codebase grown from "a snippet here and there" to "more JavaScript than HTML"? Do you find yourself writing one-off snippets instead of generalized components? You're not the only one. Learn about a handful of strategies you can use to keep your JavaScript codebase lean, modular, and flexible. We'll cover all the major pain points — MVC, templates, persisting state, namespacing, graceful error handling, client/server communication, and separation of concerns. And we'll cover how to do all this incrementally so that you don't have to redo everything from scratch.
