"A Web of Data: New Architectures for New Technology?"
The last decade has seen a wave of new technology to publish, access, and integrate data on the Web. Furthermore, many new applications have emerged and Web technologies have penetrated almost all systems from small mobile applications to large-scale enterprise applications. Nevertheless, the way we build those applications has not changed much; imperative programming languages (e.g., Java or C#) and middleware architectures are still dominant in industry. This talk tries to describe why these old architectures are problematic and presents ideas for novel software architectures to build Web applications.
