I believe firmly in decoupling front and back end, using messages for
communication, self reliance for individual machines in a network, auto
configuration for the network as a whole, 'backendless' infrastructure and
depositing as much as functionality as possible in the front end. This can be
implemented lots of different ways, this blog post discusses a sketch of just one way,
dictated by limitations chosen.
Mobile and web apps are in wild demand and built by and for everybody. Yet
nobody knows quite yet how to consistently and reliable structure and organize
the back nor the front end. Some solutions are more popular then others, but
there is no consensus, and fashion and fads seem to have undue influence. I want
to talk about why and how this has come about and some ideas on improving the
Dutch by birth, living in Australia since late youth, classical pianist, but
closet programmer since childhood. This site hopefully is able to showcase some
of my more useful fabrications and thoughts.
