Abstract:
There's an abundance of talks about developing for the web. Most of it targeted to developing mass-market websites, worrying about CDNs, SEO, bookmarks, progressive enhancement, etc.

But what if you want to build fullblown applications that just happen to be implemented in web technologies? Web apps, especially single-page, highly interactive ones, have some special characteristics.

For a long time we've been implementing web apps as if the browser was a mostly dumb terminal, and instead kept most of the logic on the server. Even current favorits like RoR or GWT keep to that old paradigm.

We'll see how we can take a REST architecture, combining it with a good dose of javascript MVP to create applications that are much closer, both in structure and in functionality, to desktop apps than to normal webpages.

By fully embracing web technology, instead of "hiding" behind some leaky abstractions, we'll be set free to take our apps to the next level. And we'll see how much nicer they are to develop.
