Frontend "vs" Backend: Getting the right mix (60m)

Modern website architectures are typically composed of 2 parts: frontend and backend. Building out frontend and backend components requires diverse skill sets and often have competing interests when it comes to developer productivity and site performance. This talk will discuss some ways Java frameworks deal with these issues as well as benefits and tradeoffs. The talk will include combine demos with cutting edge frontend frameworks (Handlebarsjs, CoffeeScript, Less) and popular Java backends (Spring, Apache CXF).

    Great topic. Can we put the sales pitches after the speaker to allow those on limited time to hear more of the main topic?

      Bob's presentation was great. Can we get the slide deck without setting up GitHub? I'm particularly interested in the software stacks you used.
