Single page apps are all the rage - apps that use MVC JavaScript frameworks and a simple REST based API on the server side (if at all) to persists data are popping up all over the place and are especially popular as a relatively simple way of developing responsive and highly interactive mobile web applications. Enough of the buzzword bingo. Building single page apps comes with a whole new set of problems that are to solve: JS side templating and where to store the templates, how to create apps that are both working as single page apps and are indexable by the mighty google bot. Also: Testing, security, etc. This talk summarizes reasons for and agains building a single page app and tops it off with deeper looks into technical aspects of building a rich client app for the browser.
