Microservices & Web Components Are The Same Thing

Microservices and web components are two of the next Next Big Steps for modern software development, for the server and client side respectively. Although involving quite different new tools and techniques though, in reality both of these developments share a common development practices heritage, as extensions of the same forward trend of good software design principles.

In this talk we’ll first take a careful look at what on earth microservices and web components really are, and examine how you’d build full-stack Node.JS application using both of them. We’ll then discuss their shared underlying heritage, why these shared principles make both concepts so powerful in practice, and how you can use that more generally to design great applications in future.

Danaboxes - What if Google was funded in the same way as Wikipedia?

Thomas Buckley-Houston will be taking a technical look at the Platform As A Service paradigm (eg; Heroku) to see how it handles large scale traffic. And imaging what the Internet would be like if large scale applications like Google weren’t dictated by corporate agendas.

Hello and thanks for dropping by. We’re starting our new meetup group very soon - please keep checking back to see what’s going on.

Meetings will be held on the first Thursday of each month, starting September 2013. We welcome talks about anything IT-based - particularly, but not exclusively, programming-centred. If you would like to present a talk, please get in touch via our Twitter account.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Please sign up for our group and register to attend the sessions you are interested in, so that we can cater for the right amount of beer and pizza!
