## Introduction
Good client side validation is an important part of giving your users a great experience when they visit your site. Backbone provides a [validate](http://backbonejs.org/#Model-validate) method, but it is left undefined and it is up to you to override it with your custom validation logic. Too many times I have seen validation implemented as lots of nested ifs and elses. This quickly becomes a big mess. One other thing is that with libraries like Backbone, you hold your state in a Model, and don't tie it to the DOM. Still, when validating your models you probably want to inform your users about errors etc., which means modifying the DOM.
