Niklas Lindgren

Biography: Niklas Lindgren

Niklas Lindgren is a mostly self-taught programmer, with a professional career spanning over a decade, mostly working with the web and web related technologies in one way or the other. At SC5, he is a bit of a jack-of-all-trades: tutoring co-workers, scouring the internet for interesting reading, pushing the envelope when it comes to client projects. When he is not programming, he rides his motorcycle, enjoys Scottish beverage, and is a general nuisance to society.

Presentation: Robots hate your single page app, long live the robot

Track: Battle-hardened HTML5 / Time: Wednesday 11:30 - 12:20 / Location: 2nd Floor Balcony, Musikhuset

SC5 and A-Lehdet just launched a responsive and adaptive website for Tuulilasi, the Finnish media authority for tech reviews of cars and other gadgets. This website relies heavily on search engine traffic, so we needed to support server side rendering. On the other hand we really wanted to use a single page app, but we didn't want to duplicate efforts.

My talk shows why the ability to share code between the browser and the server is the best thing since sliced bread. We leveraged this possibility to develop a platform that allows us to run the same application in both environments, ultimately achieving a single page app that also caters to robots.
