2 Building a BackboneJS/Parse Web App with Constraint Validation

A medium-level tutorial about developing a BackboneJS/Parse web app with constraint validation

This tutorial shows how to build a simple BackboneJS/Parse application with constraint validation. The minimal BackboneJS/Parse app that we have discussed in the first part of this 5-part tutorial has been limited to support the minimum functionality of a data management app only. However, it did not take care of preventing the users from entering invalid data into the app's database. In this second part of the tutorial we show how to express integrity constraints in a Parse/BackboneJS model class, and how to perform constraint validation both in the app's model layer and in its user interface.
