The Emerging Global Web »


The web was first conceived 25 years ago, by an Englishman. Fifteen years later, as the first crop of dot.coms were going bust, close to 60% of its users (and all Alexa "top 20" sites) came from developed nations. Fast forward to today, and the picture is strikingly different. Almost half the Alexa "top 20" now comes from emerging economies. Economies where close to 3 billion people have yet to use the web, but thanks to mobile–won’t have to wait much longer to discover it. This presentation will introduce you to fascinating and innovative services that are re-shaping the web to serve the consumers of tomorrow. Driven by mobile, the power of personal relationships, and the breakneck pace of globalisation, these services provide a glimpse into the business models, opportunities and challenges we will face, when growing a truly global web.

Using Templates to Achieve Awesomer Architecture »


Templates are the best kind of tool: simple to write and implement, but powerful enough to make your architecture slicker and your code leaner. Getting markup out of your Javascript is a huge deal, but templates can help with more than that. They can manage repeated code snippets, allow you to deftly switch states in single page applications, and help keep your code DRY when supporting users with and without Javascript enabled. Using and extending them creatively can make any architecture a little awesomer.
