ChicagoRuby: Downtown - Rails Interaction With Client-Side Code

  • Apr 2, 2013 · 6:00 PM

Noel has more than a dozen years of professional development experience, with successful projects ranging from brand new startups to Fortune 500 clients. Noel has authored five technical books, including "Rails Test Prescriptions" and "Master Space and Time With JavaScript."

About the Presentation: Rails Vs. The Client Side

There are currently two schools of thought on how Rails should interact with a rich client. In one approach, the server is the heart of the application and the primary source of truth. In the other, the client is the heart of the application. We'll look at how each of these architectures enables a rich client experience and help you decide which approach might best fit your needs.

After most downtown meetings we head over to Elephant & Castle (185 N. Wabash) for refreshments & fellowship. Join us for a few minutes if you have time.

Please use your real name when you RSVP for downtown ChicagoRuby meetings. Reason: We are required to give a list of all attendees to the security desk prior to the meeting. If the name on your ID doesn't the match the name on the RSVP list, then Aon security will not let you in the building. Sorry for the inconvenience, but those are the rules of the Aon Building.
