Doing Modern Web In The Enterprise

HTML5, touch devices and JavaScript has radically changed the enterprise application development game. No longer can development teams give second and third fiddle attitudes to the user experience. The bar has been raised for performance, interactions and demand for mobile first solutions.

These are all good things as they give developers a first class context to create web clients that can surpass user’s expectations while making the code scalable, maintainable and testable. Problems persist as developers continue to apply yesterday’s development techniques to these modern applications.

This session will demonstrate how to structure extensible, scalable, maintainable modern enterprise applications. We will cover various HTML5 features to enhance data entry, animations and continuous communications. We will also review project architecture and how to properly use good JavaScript coding techniques to create these rich line of business experiences.
