Single page apps have become a legitimate part of the web, but what role should they play? Where do they shine? Where do they fail? How should we think about them and how can we evaluate tools for building them? Henrik will opine on the tradeoffs of abstractions and frameworks, share his approaches, and attempt to gaze into the future. Read more.
