  • We are going to talk about a integrated, full-stack JavaScript development approach for Web Applications.
  • In software projects, we have to deliver on time and on budget. Like in a Rugby match you want to “touch-down” to score we want to deliver a great product. We work in agile teams, of programmers, designers, clients, the open source community and 3 rd parties to deliver. There are tons of challenges on the way to cross the line: the right tools, customer requirements, bugs, deadlines, etc.
  • In this presentation we want to focus on Web Applications. Web Applications are complex.
  • This is where all Web Applications will need to run on: connected mobile devices. Most of all apps written will run on mobile devices, smart phones or large touch-screen devices, like the iPad. They are run on either the (mobile) browsers or acquired through the manufacturers’ “Store” ecosystem.
  • Web Applications should be developed in such way, that without a lot of work, they can easily be modified to run on several devices. Today, there are more than 3997 distinct Android products available, which creates a huge device fragmentation. Fragmentation also happening in the iOS world, i.e. different screen resolutions (Retina vs. no retina display).
  • There are over 640 programming languages out there today, only an handful really make sense for Web Application programming.
  • Reasonably there are only be a handful of languages, frameworks, database servers that one considers for Web Applications.
  • The combination dependencies: languages, tools, frameworks, infrastructure create a “house of cards” situation, with so many dependencies to manage that apps do become unstable, when new versions of a apps are deployed or new app component are published, when we have to switch from different database systems, MySQL to PostgresQL in a live system, do an npm install which fails on a newer version of nodejs, etc.
  • So most of the times you require an entire team of experts (rocket scientists) like these. They develop, configure run and maintain a Web Application.
  • We want to empower the every day programmer to create Web Applications, using their existing HTML and JavaScript skills!
  • Wakanda is an full-stack JavaScript development and deployment system. It is open-source and hosted on Github. Check it out, or download an installable version on http://wakanda.org
  • Wakanda is for data centric, Web Applications
  • It is cross-platform, available on Mac, Windows, and Linux today.
  • It uses the latest HTML5 and JavaScript standards.
  • Wakanda is a full-stack JavaScript development and deployment system.
  • It is comprised of: Wakanda Server Data/HTTP Server JavaScript Environment NoSQL Object Datastore Wakanda Application Framework Automatically loaded Model proxy No plug-in, no proprietary code Wakanda Studio Data Model Designer Code Editor WYSIWYG GUI Designer Debugger Application configuration
  • Let’s show you how to build a simple data centric Web Application with Wakanda today.
