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.
