THE TALK: The Javascript Theme – business in the front, WordPress in the back

WordPress is a great content management system but keeping your frontend-code clean and well structured in WordPress can be very tough. In this talk we go through the steps of using WordPress mainly for the backend and we’ll be using tools like the new REST api, Backbone and Handlebars to create a theme that loads fast and is an absolute joy to build and maintain.
