YUI and the New Server-side Front-end

A session at YUIConf 2013

Wednesday 6th November, 2013

10:30am to 11:30am (PST)

Traditional web frameworks have always clearly defined where the front-end code ended and the back-end code began. Today, as companies are moving to more modular service-oriented architectures to more easily manage their data, front-end developers now can also use server-side components to create user interfaces that are more flexible and more performant. We'll talk about how Yahoo is using Node.js to create this new front-end, how the new components we're building are different than traditional MVC frameworks, and how you can use it to bootstrap a complex YUI application to be faster than before, while writing less boilerplate.
