Architecting resilient front-ends

A session at jQuery UK 2015

Friday 6th March, 2015

2:00pm to 2:35pm (GMT)

Companies spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on the uptime of their server infrastructure. And yet, web sites in the real world are slow to load and failing all the time. User experiences that are blocked by slow-loading JavaScript or never-loading web fonts are all too common, and undermine the cost of sustaining high availability web servers. In this session we’ll talk about how to architect client-side code for resilience. When things go wrong how can we still deliver a useful and timely experience to users?
