Talk #1 - Jonas Jabari - Create a reactive Dropbox web UI clone in pure Ruby with matestack in 20 minutes
Talk #2 - Armin Pašalić - Modular Ruby - (web) framework as implementation detail
Frameworks, these amazing tools beloved by everyone everywhere. They give us the foundation to build amazing things fast, cheap and in a predictable manner. Not only in business of developing software, but education, design, research, marketing, motivation, leadership, team dynamics... to name a few.
Here is a framework, a pre-built thing, just fill in the details and presto, it's done (in 30 min or less)! Does it deliver? Not surprisingly, yes! Most of the time! Up to a point. The point where we want to build something not quite fitting the provided frame. This is where things often can go sideways. And this is the point from which we will explore a slightly different approach.
