Are you tired of building simple web apps using complex JavaScript frameworks? Would you like to get back to the good old days of server-rendered applications, but worried that you'll lose responsiveness and interactivity?

Tools like HTMX, Hotwire and Livewire represent a new paradigm for creating web applications. They let you build simple but powerful apps, using the bare minimum of client-side JavaScript, and building on the strengths of the browser.

Expect a brief but ill-informed overview of the history of web development, a demonstration of what these new tools can do and thoughts on whether they might be right for your next project.


Pizzas provided by our venue! Runway East has been fighting boring offices since 2014. Members get team bliss guaranteed with space to scale. Learn more.

Update: Urlbox is joining as a last-minute sponsor supporting our first merch print run in over a decade - more details on that soon. Check out their Screenshot API.
