Right now we have great frameworks and technologies to create websites and mobile apps. We have great languages and databases for server back-end. But there are not many changes in the connection between the client and server. Many applications stop working with a slow or unstable connection. Loaders block our UX on every small step. Most of the applications don’t have offline support and live updates. We are not ready for the next billion users with slow Internet. But also we are not ready for the unstable Internet in metro or low-signal LTE.
Andrey Sitnik, the creator of PostCSS and Autoprefixer, will speak about new ideas in client-server communications. How the mix of ideas behind CRDT, distributed computing, and Elm/Redux could change the UX in most applications.
