About the Technology
Build secure web apps that perform beautifully with high, low, or no bandwidth. Isomorphic web apps employ a pattern that exploits the full stack, storing data locally and minimizing server hits. They render flawlessly, maximize SEO, and offer opportunities to share code and libraries between client and server.
