Isomorphic Business Logic

A session at Node PDX 2016

Monday 20th June, 2016

10:15am to 10:45am (PST)

Business logic is all the tricky calculations, rules and transformations that never seem to be in the hot new framework’s example ToDo app. Lately I’ve been finding it’s also the key to convincing clients and bosses that they NEED to run a node layer, no matter what other backend techs they happen to be rocking. In this talk I’ll dive into why and how, including:

An intro to isomorphic javascript
Challenges that arise from wanting a performant client and server-side verification
How this gets exacerbated if you happen to be using a microservices-based backend
Business logic – that pesky stuff that isn’t in the ToDo App
Story time: A real world example of an app trying to apply the same logic in 2 different languages
Isomorphic business logic to the rescue!
The close… How all of this translates to ‘you need to run a node server’:)
