Optimize DevOps with a Single Codebase for Web and Mobile Applications
DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than
building the same application twice. However, this is a routine occurrence
with enterprise applications that need both a rich desktop web interface and
strong mobile support. With recent technological advances from Isomorphic
Software and others, it is now feasible to create a rich desktop and tuned
mobile experience with a single codebase, without compromising performance or
