We all know that modules are in our future. ECMAScript.Next modules (aka "Harmony" modules) will start appearing in browsers in early 2012. Too bad Harmony modules won't be universal 2021 when IE9 will finally be dead.
No need to wait! AMD and CommonJS Modules/1.1 are fully supported in a wide variety of environments already. But why are there two standards? Which one should I pick?
We'll take a quick look at each of the formats, compare and contrast their features, discuss the benefits of using modules now, and finally draw some conclusions.
Hannes will focus on features aimed towards highly concurrent CPU-heavy server-side applications, including selective data sharing, concurrent lock-free data structures, functional programming, and read-only data.
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.
Programmers often create an application’s user experience (UX) without involving designers. Learn how to optimize the UX by doing less work and by using client-side frameworks. Learn when to introduce new patterns and when to stick with existing ones.
Design is all about decisions. Programmers make decisions every day that will affect their product’s success. Even without being a designer, you can create a great user experience.
