Presentation: "Single Page Apps and the Future of History"

Time: Friday 10:35 - 11:35

Location: Westminster Suite, Fourth Floor

The HTML5 stack - HTML, CSS, and JavaScript - has become a platform for applications, not just static documents. Full page refreshes are becoming a rarity in this new world, as the document-oriented website gives way to Single-Page Apps. What does this mean for developers and their users - revolutionary panacea or just-plain headache? This talk will look at the state of HTML5 art in dealing with single page apps, and identify best practices for dealing with the concerns of user experience, accessibility, and SEO
