  2. As a software consultant, I get to see a lot of interesting code. In this particular instance a client was in the process of transforming their web application to a rich, interactive interface with the help of another company.

    The project kicked off using Backbone and things were great. Until they were not great. Pages starting getting more and more involved and blame started being thrown at the technology choice.

    A move to Ember.js ensued and the app was rewritten. But architecturally bad decisions don't hide long, and soon the rewrite was preforming even worse. That's when I stepped in, with the help of another consultant, to solve the performance issues once and for all. Our solution used Backbone.js and it was fast. This is that journey.

  3. After working independent for the past 8 years, I have seen a few things that went good and quite a few that have not. When things break down, it's almost always due to poor communication.

    It doesn't have to be like this.

    We'll discuss the mindsets of everyone involved with seeing a project succeed and what tools or techniques can help to fill the communication gap.
