You might think building a database in JavaScript is one of the worst ideas, and you would be right. But it begs the more interesting question, what algorithms would be necessary to make even the most volatile of environments (the browser) be a reliable haven for data?

In this talk Mark will share some controversial ideas he has formed whilst exploring databases and developing Gun, the distributed, embedded, graph database engine. Join Mark for this talk to hear his story of 'how it all happened', and discover how javascript is actually a suitable environment for data both in node and in the browser.

Mark will cover:

  • NoOps
  • App Architectures for performance
  • Maintainability.

Check out Gun, the distributed, embedded, graph database engine, on github for some background on Mark's journey and experience.
