The end of 'Enterprise Editions': make apps, not services
The No-Backend movement is perhaps best known for quick prototyping,scalability, and convenient cloud deployment. However, we are learning how to scale down as well as up. A number of technologies, in the browser, the backend, and in virutalisation, are enabling new methods of distribution. By using standardised server components we can reach beyond the "Software-as-a-Service" model.
Many organisations will have security policies which exclude them from the client-base of service-orientated companies. While the "Firewall Install" may be an option for larger players, how do we handle the security concious SME? For many applications, we can look to the No-Backend movement for inspiration. With a focus on keeping the value in the app, not the infrastructure, we can deliver excellent products to a wider audience, both as a service and self-hosted.
This talk will explore the tools and techniques for delivering applications for self-hosting, how the No-Backend movement is making easy deployment a reality, and why this is an important development for the web.
