Championing Rails in a World of JS

Nick Haskins @nphaskins

Each and every day I see another developer asking what JS library to use in their new product. I remain befuddled.

Because the applications that I've built over the last few years have some crazy interactive features. Real-time notifications. Drag and drop page builders. REST API's. All using the same tooling that we've had for nearly 15 years now.

Ruby on Rails is not a web developers first choice in tooling anymore, overshadowed by the shear popularity of JS. I'm out to change this, and it's given me a bit of a fire inside to make the final push to finish this eBook.

Today I hit 15K words, and so far it's looking to be about 60% completed. After the eBook draft is completed, I'll start working on the companion app, and I'm excited about that!

If you're interested in a simplistic and pragmatic approach to building amazingly interactive and powerful web applications, leave your email to be notified when the pre-sale starts.
