The new web aka web 2.0 is defined by thick JS clients, static web content, and loads of API integrations. Learn from experienced industry veterans on how to build an application in today's landscape.

"The Design Implications of the Realtime Web" by Aaron Gray
As the demand for a realtime web is met with our ability to build it, browsers now facilitate more and more of our application's code. To accommodate, JavaScript MVCs polluted the web with new frameworks that meet the needs of users and designers with varying degrees of success. Through natural selection, a handful have lasted and made the ambitions of the realtime web more attainable than ever. We'll discuss the design implications of realtime applications that run in the browser, what you can do to inspire the use of new technologies, and how SpaceBars, MiniMongo, Socket.io, and DDP help your team implement better apps in less time through Meteor.

"Guerilla APIs" by Shelby Switzer
Open data at the local scale is even more of a mess than at the national level, but while there are increasing efforts to improve things nationally, cities, towns, counties, and even states are being left behind. These smaller entities don't have the resources to implement APIs for their data, and community tech groups and developers who want to use this data constantly hit walls — from fragmented, non-uniform data to finding API hosting and maintenance. But what if we could throw all that data in a box that’s easy to open, close, and move around — bypassing traditional solutions requiring infrastructure for hosting and maintenance. Enter Docker and ElasticSearch, and a simple three-layer API-in-a-box solution that any developer can immediately turn on with `docker-compose up`. 

"Static is the New Black" by Ara Howard
Static websites and content is coming back as a web development trend in a huge way. In a follow up talk to his wildly popular post "Static is the New Black", Ara discusses why companies small and large are going static. His talk will include some code, so come with your nerd hat on.
