Henning Koch wants to give this talk

Modern frontends without Javascript

In this talk I want to explore how server-side Ruby apps can achieve most of the speed and flexibility of client-side Javascript frameworks, while massively reducing complexity.

Over a span of three years our team has gone from server-rendered Rails apps to client-side single page applications (SPAs). Overwhelmed by the complexity of modern Javascript development stacks, we're now moving frontends back to the server, using modern browser capabilities for a fresh take on progressive enhancement techniques.
