English Intermediate Development

Oh, the pendulum swings! Render everything on the server! No, render everything on the client! Render everything ... on the server again, except that there are no servers? If all those pendulum swings make your head dizzy, don't worry! Pendulums have the tendency to stop right in the middle. And this is where we are going with the big question: Where, and when, should we render our HTML? In this talk, we explore rendering strategies with the help of Azure Functions. We look into - lesser-known TypeScript features like JSX factories - concepts like Hydration - an architecture for highly dynamic and performant web sites Join us and see where the pendulum stops. And find out if we give it another swing!
