CRDT and other new ideas for client-server communication

Right now we have great frameworks and technologies to create websites and mobile apps. We have great languages and databases for server back-end. But there are no many changes in a connection between client and server. Many application stops to work with a slow or unstable connection. Loaders block our UX on every small step. Most of the application doesn’t have offline support and live updates.

We are not ready for next billion users with slow Internet. But also we are not ready for the unstable Internet in metro or low-signal LTE.

Andrey Sitnik, the creator of PostCSS and Autoprefixer, will speak about new ideas in client-server communications. How the mix of ideas behind CRDT, distributed computing, and Elm/Redux could change the UX in most of applications.
