  • NoFlo – Managing workflows with JavaScript

    by Henri Bergius

    NoFlo is a JavaScript implementation of Flow-Based Programming, a way
    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.

    At 2:00pm to 2:30pm, Saturday 15th October
