Mikael Kopteff - Isomorphic Web with Reaktor

Server-rendered HTML+CSS pages leveraging proper caching are fast, but page changes are clunky and application state management is problematic.

Using experiences spanning several projects, we'll tackle some of the inevitable gotchas like how to create clean components without polluting them with server-side or client-side code!
