What is the best way to build Realtime HTML5 Apps? by Brad Carleton
Brad is the founder and CTO of Tech Pines in Austin, TX. An active contributor in the Node.js open source community, Brad has written two popular Node modules - AssetRack and Express.io. He has authored two technical books, and he is regularly invited and obliged to facilitate conversations on various technical topics in public forums ranging from user groups to large conventions such as South By Southwest.
REST and MV-* have become the growing consensus in the industry, but how do these paradigms hold up in a world of bi-directional communication brought on by the emergence of WebSockets and Socket.io? Is it time to rethink REST, AJAX, MVC and all of the other technologies that helped build Web 2.0? We'll look at these problems and more in the context of Bone.io, a new VIO framework, that makes smart tradeoffs to allow for faster application development and better separation of concerns in the new age of Realtime.
Composition through REST by Paul Frazee
Paul Frazee is an Austin-based web developer with an interest in social computing, virtual reality, and systems architecture. He currently works on challenging problems at Goodybag, maintains Grimwire.com, and is super excited about his oculus rift.
Unix and Plan9 are well-known for their compositional tools - pipes & streams, dynamic namespaces, etc - but what is it that makes those tools possible, and why don't we have them in the Web? Join us for a talk on the architectural features that shape the Web, and why we might not want to write any more front-end code.
