QConSF 2012: Real Time MVC with Geddy

Daniel Erickson from yammer presents on mixing MVC with Real Time apps.

MVC is here to say because…

  • It provides structure to a project
  • Allow people to easily jump into a project and multiple people at that
  • Easier to get started with

Realtime is great for:

  • Getting instant feedback from your users
  • Works well on mobile (Voxer)
  • WebSockets over long/short polling

How can MVC and Real Time can be mixed?

Enter Geddy…if you know Rails, NoSQL/SQL ORM layers and templating languages than Geddy is a natural progression. PostGres, Riak, MongoDB adapters; EJS and Jade TL’s. Supports RT OOTB.

Geddy gives you a reach ORM/MVC framework that you can readily work into your Node.js applications.  I’ll have to take a look when I get back!
