Slide Deck Link: The Architecture of the Morrison’s OrderPad

Screenshot of slide from slide deck

This is a slide deck (itself a neat little web application) detailing the architecture of a large scale web application and the design decisions made along the way.

From the slide deck

Morrisons OrderPad is a tablet web-application that helps staff in supermarkets place orders for new stock as they walk around the store. The resulting application makes a good expositional architecture for a tablet web application backed by a lightweight java server application. We highlight the separation of application control and DOM interaction on the client, using small, focused frameworks on the server, the broad-stack testing environment, and the use of a pilot project to understand what features were needed.
