NoFlo – Managing workflows with JavaScript

A session at Wakanday 2011

Saturday 15th October, 2011

2:00pm to 2:30pm (EST)

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.
