I really like the pub/sub setup... when I started using it last week it was a huge revelation lol.

I'm not totally sold on the way she uses creates controllers though, I kind of like the way backbone does it by default. Basically I just use the router with params and then publish. Then the views subscribe, react and use the param data when needed.

I wish backbone would call their 'views' 'components' with their own sub 'components' instead, since backbone views are really just groupings of ui widgets.

Tutorials are any resources you learn from.

Examples: an intro to html5 screencast, a pdf about git, photoshop effects tutorials, meta-programming in ruby, lambda calculus, higher-order fixed-point combinators.

Tools are websites, apps or services used -on- your project (indirectly), to aid the process.

Examples: A color scheme generator, email marketing software, usability heat maps, css3 code generators, a downloadable png compressor.

Assets are downloadable files used -in- your projects, usually as code, textures, or images.

Examples: a jquery sticky menu, photoshop brushes, background textures, mvc frameworks, twitter bootstrap, 960 grid system.
