Choose your SPA framework with Ward Bell

PLEASE NOTE THE CHANGE OF VENUE: WE WILL BE HOSTED BY DOCUSIGN, NEAR THE EMBARCADERO BART STATION


SPAs (Single Page Application) are client apps written in HTML and JavaScript. They are closer to desktop apps than web apps and you write them with the architectures, tools, and techniques familiar to desktop application developers. There are many 3rd party libraries and frameworks competing for your attention. What do you really need and how do you choose? 

In this session you'll learn how to think about and answer these questions with respect to the bread-and-butter, "forms over data" apps most of us write. We'll concentrate in particular on "presentation frameworks" that mediate between the widgets on screen and persistent data. We'll compare Durandal and Angular.js because they are popular, solid, and representative choices; they are not the only choices, mind you. This is not a fluffy session; we'll use code to make our points. But it's not a "how to" session either.

The speaker

Ward Bell is VP of Technology at IdeaBlade, makers of the DevForce .NET enterprise application development (www.ideablade.com). Ward is also a Microsoft MVP who obsesses on Silverlight, Smart Client, Persistence, development practices, and "Prism".

    Ward always puts on a good show, sorry to miss this one. Any chance the slides or a video will be published afterward?
