Design Space of Modern HTML5/JavaScript Web Applications

May 2013 Presentation
Marcin Nowak, Cesare Pautasso

A presentation given at the SATURN 2013 conference, held April 29 - May 3, 2013, in Minneapolis, MN.


Software Engineering Institute



This presentation gives a tour of the architectural design-decision space for modern Web applications. Assuming that architects have decided to pick emerging HTML5/JavaScript technologies to build a medium-sized, highly interactive, and possibly collaborative application, this tour will explore the important consequences and discuss the implications of this decision. Thanks to our systematic perspective over the design-decision space of modern Web applications, attendees will learn to distinguish what is possible from what is challenging to achieve.
