A contrarian view to building data interactive front-ends
We live in world of “big data”. However, the front-end for the “big data” age is the browser which cannot hold more than 1-5 MB of data at any given moment of time. The problem becomes more aggravated in mobiles where the bandwidth is even lower. How to build user interfaces that are data heavy and interactive in nature?
Outline/structure of the Session
- Introduction to Data-driven Interactivity
- What is PykQuery
- Problems with data interactivity
- How PykQuery addresses them
- Code Snippets
Think beyond implementation i.e. taking a pre-built framework and building a front-end from it. Think in terms of first principles and see if you can build something that is specific to your use case. With greater control over your code, you can write enterprise software that will outlast the transient trends.
