In Hack Reactor week 6 (the final week of our junior life), we started working on our MVP project. It’s our first time in Hack Reactor to work on a project solo. Within 36 hours, we needed to come up with an idea, write our product from scratch, and prepare a demo.
My MVP project is called Github Saga, which is a web service that allows you to enter your Github handle and find out your contribution data among your followers and following.
I didn’t realize that I had Github contribution issues until the recent Hack Reactor group project. The situation is like the picture below: I had several commits push to Github, but Github didn’t recognize my account. The result is that I am not in the list of the group project contributors.
In Hack Reactor week 3, we were introduced to Backbone.js. I didn’t fully grasp the concept of Backbone in class, so I would like to practice it and explain my understanding here.
So, first of all, let’s build an HTML page for our To-do app. We need to include jquery, underscore, and backbone library. The app.js is the file we will build for backbone.
