The Component Approach

Wednesday, 19th – 13:50

As Web applications and teams grow larger, progress slows, bugs increase and ownership gets lost. This is a sign your project is too big. The solution is nothing revolutionary; we just need to break the task down into small manageable chunks. In Web development we call these chunks 'components'.

In this talk, Wilson will address the benefits of a component-based architecture, touching on real-world encounters from Financial Times, The Economist and Firefox OS Web applications. Wilson will discuss the component-based solutions of today and tomorrow, outlining how they can better solve some of our everyday problems.
