of separating the control flow of software from the actual software
logic. It helps organizing large applications, and especially in
importing and modifying large data sets.
FBP itself is not a new idea, coming from 70s IBM concepts of more
manageable business workflows, but NoFlo refreshes these concepts and
brings them to Node.js applications.
The MIT-licensed NoFlo library can either be used to run full
flow-based applications, or as a library for making complex workflows
or asynchronous processes manageable.
This session will introduce Flow-Based Programming to the audience,
and show how NoFlo can be used for large-scale data processing. It
will also contain a bit on the lighter side of NoFlo: how to simplify
user interactions through it.

As we all know, HTML5 is blurring the distinction between native apps and web apps. Aiding this evolution is an explosion of frameworks and toolsets to help to build these cross-platform, next generation applications. In this presentation, Jesse will describe the current landscape of both UI frameworks: Sencha Touch, jQuery Mobile, jQTouch, jo, zepto, and native containers PhoneGap, Appcelerator, and Brightcove App Cloud.
Jesse’s presentation will then dive deep into building a very minimal app on top of both PhoneGap and Brightcove App Cloud.
