Work on a Project
This is a bit of no-brainer as a learning technique. Completing a project will help me most with learning front-end frameworks. I am familiar with Angular, having used that in project, but I’m planning to turn my focus to Backbone, given that the NYT uses Backbone pretty heavily for its front-end code (perhaps because Jeremy Ashkenas, the creator of Backbone, used to be a developer on the NYT’s Interactive News team). I’m still tossing around a few ideas of what I could build, but this Backbone tutorial for an interactive wine cellar seems like a good project that I could translate to another domain.
