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.
