Last week I travelled to San Francisco for Fluent Conf, a front end web development conference held every year by O’Reilly. It was fantastic to experience this event for the first time and meet many new and interesting people to chat with.
- If the first render is done on the server, the time before a user sees content in their browser is dramatically reduced. Rather than wait for all the JS to download and execute, the first render is provided by the server before any of the JS is downloaded.
Thank you to all the attendees that chose to come to the talk; I had a great time presenting it and I hope that it was useful information to have. I’m really excited to see the community get behind this idea of Universal JS applications (along with React, the Ember and Angular teams are working on solutions too) and hopefully in a year or so I can give that talk with some more answers and perfected code examples.
Fluent was a great event and I was very grateful to the organisers for letting me a part of it. Particular thanks to Peter Cooper for playing a huge role in organising the event and making it a really enjoyable experience.
The great news is that in 6 months time Fluent comes to Europe at Fluent Amsterdam and I’m already looking forward to hopefully attending that event too.
