Is enterprise JavaScript really that hard? Or is it really usable in the context of enterprise applications and as the basis of front-end browser-based applications? Watch Geertjan Wielenga’s JAX London 2017 session and find out all the answers you need.

JavaScript in the enterprise: is it hard? Is JavaScript really usable in the context of enterprise applications and as the basis of front-end browser-based applications? How are enterprises such as PayPal, Tesco, and Oracle solving these problems?

In this session, you are introduced to Kraken.js by PayPal, as well as Oracle JET (, Oracle’s JavaScript toolkit, including data visualizations, architectures, templates, components, and a range of enterprise solutions, such as modularity, internationalization, and accessibility.

Everything is free and open sourced on GitHub and you’ll be shown how to get started with it via demos and live coding. By the end of the session, you’ll be able to leverage free and open source technologies as the basis of your own web and mobile solutions, today!

Happy coding!

Interesting product but just hope won’t get the destination like Java where Oracle start charging business users.

I personally believe that JavaScript in Enterprise is possible. I have previously worked on such projects.
