Marrying front end with back end

This is a presentation created by Bastian Hofmann, Software Engineer @ResearchGate. He is also an Apache Shindig committer, public speaker, Federated Social Web enthusiast and an open source lover.

In this presentation you will find an architecture that enables heavy reuse of even the smallest components by showing the details of the researchgate.net implementation. This approach enables developers to take page elements, like a follow button, and place it everywhere on the site without having to duplicate any PHP, JS, HTML or CSS in the process enabling huge scalability, performance and UX improvements beyond a classic (H)MVC approach.
