I have a Dreamcode: Build Apps, not Backends - Alex Feyerke30:34 with Alex Feyerke
As frontend devs, we're a bit stuck: we usually focus on building just one half of a web experience, and we're dependent on others to provide us with the other half: the backend. Or we become both-end devs and do everything ourselves, often stretching our expertise quite thin. But lo! On the horizon, a new trend appears, and it's called noBackend. It bears the promise of rapid, frontend-centric app development, abstracting away all the recurring pain and hassle that comes with backend development into simple front-end libraries, with barely a need to ever come in contact with the server-side. Some of them go a step further, not merely exposing the backend to the front, but understanding the frontend devs as users, and designing the APIs directly to their needs. This will be a talk about the noBackend/"Backend as a Service"-paradigm of web application development, and how it is a natural extension of the concept of user-centered library/API/service design. I believe that these noBackend services will be a hugely empowering and equalizing force in the very near future, and I'd like to show why it's so great, how it works and who's currently doing what in this area. There will also be a little bit of live-coding to round it all off.
