@anthonybrown

there's a typo, instead of personView.el = $('#personConatiner')
should be: personView.$el = $('#personContainer')
same for the peopleView.$el

I am using the latest versions, jQuery 2.0, Backbone 1.01 etc

@suark

Will this work if I am trying it in JS bin? I changed the dependencies so it uses the links that jsbin needs. But the output just kind of displays the top of some box.... and did I mention I'm new to handlebars?
