We'll kick things off with a bit of an MVC retrospective—to identify where it falls apart when we're trying to scale a frontend architecture. Following this, we'll take a deeper look at at unidirectional data-flow and how it solves some of the scaling issues we've identified in MVC architectures.
Next, we'll address some high-level compositional issues faced by Flux architectures, such as making everything explicit and favoring layers over deep hierarchies. Finally, ...
