19:30: The Future Should Be Isomorphic
by Lukas Taegert-Atkinson
Remember that web development used to be instant fun? But it appears that these days, tooling is getting more between you and the web than ever. This will be a sketch of a different future where fun and instant gratification align with the highly optimized code expected these days, a future that has already started.
RPC is an old technique for inter-process communication that can be dated back as earlier as the 70s.
With the recent advent of gRPC, RPC is making a resurgence and is getting popular in the industry. Large companies, such as Google and Netlix, are starting to replace REST/GraphQL with RPC for internal APIs.
Beyond internal APIs, can RPC be used for web development?
We will explore the benefits and drawbacks of RPC in the context of web development by comparing it with REST and GraphQL. We will then present an RPC library for Node.js and the browser.
