Single Page Application - (42 min) a presentation by Matt DeBergalis
TL;DR Executive Summary
- For many web developers, it’s now taken for granted that such client-side frameworks are the way to build rich web apps. If you’re not using one, you’re either not building an application, or you’re just missing out.
- There’s lots of consensus among the main frameworks about how to do it (Model-View-* architecture, declarative bindings, etc. — details below), so to some extent you get similar benefits whichever you choose.
- Some major philosophical differences remain, especially the big split between frameworks and libraries. Your choice will deeply influence your architecture.
- The conference itself was stylish and upbeat, with a lot of socialising and conversations across different technology groups. I’d like to see more like this.
