Web *.o: Simplifying Web Programming
Dr. Nishant Sinha, IBM Research, India
Date & Time: March 21, 2015 11:00
Venue: Lecture Hall, B Block, 02nd/03rd Floors, Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Kanwal Rekhi (KReSIT) Building
Programming modern, interactive web apps is hard owing to multiple challenges: gluing together multiple mismatched web technologies, ubiquity of dynamically typed languages, heterogeneous mobile platforms and rapid evolution of frameworks and tools. In this talk, I will discuss a set of core programming abstractions which can help drastically simplify modern web programming, thus allowing the developer to focus on the core app design. Time permitting, I will also overview a few other emerging areas of PL/systems research.
