In this session, we take a look through the process of building a rich full-stack Javascript application, API-first.

Local polyglot developer, Tom Parslow (@almostobsolete), will demonstrate how building a RESTful API as a base can have some surprising, positive effects on the design of a system. As a case study, he’ll show us around an application he built with Dharmafly that serves a self-describing API with a full-stack JavaScript app, built using Node.js, Backbone, CoffeeScript and CouchDB.
