When building out the front end for an application with strong real-time requirements, there are many considerations.
How do we get initial data? How do we get subsequent updates? What happens if they lose connectivity? Web components provide an excellent model for progressively enhancing initial markup. Workers allow us to move rendering off the main thread.
In this talk, Simon MacDonald will demonstrate and discuss an architecture that scales down to any device with a spotty internet connection while scaling up to a fully realized real-time application.
Five things the audience will learn
- A standards-based approach to building web apps
- Server-side rendering of web components
- Progressively enhancing server-side rendered applications
- Rendering in web workers
- Functional web app architecture
