A few months ago, Basecamp released Hotwire, their support tools for client-side development using HTML over the wire rather than JSON. These are the generic versions of the tools that power Hey. Hotwire consists of the already released StimulusJS, and Turbo, which is the successor to Turbolinks.

You can find me at https://buttondown.email/noelrap — subscribe there for free to get an email newsletter that I update hopefully once a week (probably a little less than that until the books are done). If you want to, you can subscribe for money, in which case you will get some occasional extra content, but honestly, it’s mostly a tip jar right now.
I’ve been writing there about the new Rails Hotwire stuff: Turbo, Stimulus, and I’m also doing a series of posts about Agile and team concepts that I’m calling The Entropy Essays. Plus other random developer and tech related stuff.
I hope you’ll join me there.

So, I had enough fun with comparing RailsConf to older RailsConfs last year that I thought I’d do it again.
Same rules. There are 20 talk titles listed here, 10 of them are from the 2009 RailsConf in Las Vegas, 10 of them are from the 2017 program in Phoenix…
