Architecting and developing user interfaces used to be relatively easy, pick a server side framework, define a standard monitor resolution and spend your days dealing with browser quirks. But today, the landscape presents us with a plethora of screen sizes and resolutions covering everything from a phone to a tablet to a TV. How does a team embrace this brave new world knowing that the future will introduce even more volatility to the client space?
This talk will walk you through this brave new world. We’ll discuss the deluge of devices the typical application must deal with today as well as looking at the plethora of client side rendering technologies. This isn’t strictly a front end problem though, we need to reconsider how we’ve built our server side solutions as well; modern applications rely on RESTful web services delivering data to a diverse set of clients. The development landscape has changed, this talk will prepare you to face these challenges.
