Transcript of The history of the internet universe.

the history of the internet universe
(not as boring as it sounds - I promise)
the dark ages
click, load, click, load
yawwwwwwn, slow pages
slow development
lots and lots of work
browser wars
impossible to safely develop for multiple browsers
the dot bomb
1999 - the year the tubes went down
the dawn of the interwebs
bullet points
formatted text
that's pretty much it
first, there was html: for structure
other decor
then they added CSS: for style
lets websites be smarter
allowed interactive elements
good for tabs
good for forms
mostly unused
too complex for devs of the day
next, they added JS:
for logic
the stack so far
just front end tech
high tech futuristic websites from leading corporations
totally hella bitchin rad personal sites
some sites needed more power
to deliver actual services
the stack so far
html / css
thick complex server
old school database
full stack tech
dynamic html
still no javascript
the full stack solution
the database
the server
web 2.0 - 2006 - the renaissance
things get interesting
no more hardware investment
elastic hosting
load balancing
pay only for what you use
used by netflix
Amazon Web Services
eliminates server construction
cuts build time to a third or less
startup weekend's app would have taken at least 2 weeks traditionally
most important was the agile philosophy
Ruby on Rails
allows for server communication from JS
lets you rewrite HTMl without reloading pages
now, click change, not click load
dynamic HTML is now... Web Apps!
prominent examples include:
gmail's all in one page feature
pinterest's infinite scrolling
(Asynchronous JS and XML)
the stack so far
html / css
thick heavy JS for AJAX
thin agile servers via frameworks
old school database
design frameworks
twitter bootstrap
zurb foundation
now you can design as fast as making a mockup
next up...
web 2.5 - more awesome shit!
embed video and audio without plugins
canvas - like flash but also, no plugins
beautifies the web
rounded corners
web 3.0 - the future
bring out the flying cars
JS as a server: node.js
thanks google!
The age of Javascript
JS to access data
thanks modern hardware!
JS as a framework
thanks again google!
love it or hate it, JS has become the one language
unity through frameworks
js, html and css frameworks unify browsers by hiding incompatibilites from developers
separate code for android, iOs and web is no more

mobile is the future
mobile devices have outsold PCs for years
mobile apps still use remote services for data
apps move logic away from the server and into the phone for faster performance
why not move it all?
I'm going mobile
beep beep, mmm, beep beep, yeah
move all code to app
server becomes irrelevant
introducing the BaaS
JS as a mobile app
the stack I chose
html / css (duh)
thin JS / AJAX layer
modern high speed data store
our exact tech stack
still awake?
Angular JS
our JS framework
the core of our app around which all else revolves
2 way data binding
faster more responsive
popular = community
backed by google
hard to learn
steep learning curve
about to undergo massive changes
hard to learn
our front end framework
like bootstrap, but looks more mobile
ties in to angular
looks like a mobile app
uses cordova to access mobile hardware
none so far
maybe smaller community?
but the documentation is execllent
our data store
it's a BaaS
eliminates the need for a server
ties in to angular
provides 3 way data binding!
backed by google
no maintenance
vendor lock in
scalability limited to their business
pro: our data is ours and can be easily moved
data must be backed up constantly
thanks much!
I wanted to include just the clapping from this video, but prezi wouldn't let me
