Ultra-Modern Front End Architectures with Boundless Learning

Web-sites with only one web-page? Web-servers that serve no HTML? SASS/HAML/Coffee in place of CSS/HTML/JS? The future of front-ends is a very different place, indeed, and requires a very different type of workflow and way of thinking, but the benefits can be great.

Aaron White and members of the Boundless engineering team will share why single page web-apps are the future of the web, the benefits they confer, and detailed information on HOW they are architected, deployed, and maintained in the real-world. As a bonus, they will open source their SPAR framework they use to accelerate modern front-end development.

Technical Topics include:

- Overview of Single page web-apps and their benefits to users and developers.

- Modern Front-end architecture from browser through server and ops.

- Modern front-end tooling, debugging, and techniques.

- Deployment strategy


- Real World Q&A

    Great prestenation; only flaw: I wish he'd not omitted SEO entirely, even though there were time constraints.

    Bleeding edge. Reinforces the value of becoming proficient+ in JavaScript and jQuery.

    I understood the general concept presented, and the speaker was concise. However, the level of technical jargon got way too high and I was only understanding a fraction of each sentence as the talk progressed.

    I must say this was one of the best technical Meetup presentations that I've seen. The material was cutting-edge. The presentation and speaker were exceptionally clear and well-organized. Excellent overall.

    It was okay. The concepts themselves weren't all that new—CSS preprocessors and Coffeescript have been around for a while.

    The missed opportunity: that modern front-end development requires tools like Spar and Yeoman ( to handle the tediousness of compressing Sass, Haml, run the unit tests, compress the images, etc.

    Most devs don't want to change how they do things unless the productivity gains are clear. This would have been a great chance to show how much more productive a developer can be by using a build system and abstractions like Sass, Coffeescript and Haml instead of doing stuff because it's new and hip, which is what some folks were talking about after the meeting broke up.

    For those of us that can't make it, will someone post the slide deck here? Thanks so much!
