The future of single-page apps

A session at Webshaped 2013

Thursday 23rd May, 2013

12:00pm to 12:45pm (HMT)

Single-page apps, such as those written with Backbone, are a controversial addition to the Web. They have had a reputation for being slow, inaccessible and hard to work with.

But they don’t have to be. I will explore why websites have been written this way and what we need to do to make them better citizens of the web. It will mean rethinking how we do every piece of the stack, from infrastructure right up to the client.
