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 Talk

  • Introduction to Data-driven Interactivity
  • What is PykQuery
  • Problems with data interactivity 
  • How PykQuery addresses them
  • Code Snippets
  • Demo

Learning Outcome

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.

    Hi Ritvvij, 

    Thanks for the interesting proposal. PykQuery does look like an impressive library. We were wondering if you would consider to condense this to a 20 mins talk focusing on the real use-case that this library addresses and then take us on an insider tour of how you went about the architecture of this library, it would really help. The participants are not interested in a marketing pitch of the library, but rather interested on the core technical aspects of this. 

    If this makes sense, please update the proposal accordingly.
