Building Modern Web Apps with HTML5 and DART

December 20, 2011

Modern Web apps are rich, snappy, and work offline and mobile, too. In this talk, we’ll look at the frameworks and HTML5 features that make these possible and introduce DART, a new language for structured Web programming. In particular, we’ll take a look at the motivation for DART, language syntax and features, the DART Editor, using the JS compiler, and improvements to the DOM. We’ll also discuss DART in relation to JS and GWT.

Building and Deploying 12 Factor Apps in Scala and Java

April 18, 2017

The twelve-factor app is a modern methodology for building software-as-a-service apps:

• Use declarative formats for setup automation, to minimise time and cost for new developers joining the project.

• Have a clean contract with the underlying operating system, offering maximum portability between execution environments.

• Are suitable for deployment on modern cloud platforms, obviating the need for servers and systems administration.

• Minimise divergence between development and production, enabling continuous deployment for maximum agility.

• And can scale up without significant changes to tooling, architecture, or development practices.

We will build a RESTful web service in Java and deploy the app to CloudFoundry. We will go over how to build a cloud manifest, how to keep our database credentials and application configuration outside of our code by using user-provided services and go over what it takes to build a 12 Factor application in the cloud. This presentation will be heavy on code and light on slides!
