[ruby-talk:444426] Upcoming Montreal.rb Talk on March 6, 2023: "Frontend Ruby with Glimmer DSL for Web"

I will be giving a Montreal.rb Ruby meetup talk titled "Frontend Ruby with
Glimmer DSL for Web" on Wednesday, March 6 2024 at 7pm ET (doors open at
6:15pm ET). The event will be hosted at Lexop (Montreal, Quebec, Canada).
The talk description is below. In my opinion,
this is the most exciting Ruby topic in 2024 for doubling productivity and
halving cost and time in developing and maintaining Rails Frontends
compared to using inferior JS technologies like React, Angular, Vue,
Svelte, etc... I strongly believe this will be the most important Ruby
investment in 2024. Anyone who ignores it will be stuck in what is like
the Ice Age of Frontend Development by comparison, kinda like riding horse
carriage compared to driving a Ferrari.


Talk Description :

"Rubyists would rather leverage the productivity, readability, and
maintainability benefits of Ruby in Frontend Web Development than
JavaScript to cut down development cost and time by half compared to using
popular yet inferior JavaScript frameworks with bloated JavaScript code as
per Matz's suggestion in his RubyConf 2022 keynote speech to replace
JavaScript with Ruby. Fortunately, this is possible in 2024!

This talk is a continuation of the previous Montreal.rb talk "Intro to Ruby
in the Browser", which ended by promising a new way in the future for
developing Web Frontends that would completely revolutionize the way we
think about and do Frontend Development using Ruby instead of JavaScript.
The future is now!!! The simplest, most intuitive, most straight-forward,
and most productive Frontend Framework in existence is here! It is an
open-source Ruby gem called Glimmer DSL for Web.

Think of Glimmer DSL for Web as the Rails of Frontend Frameworks. With it,
you can finally live in Rubyland in both the Frontend and Backend on the
Web! That opens up the door to ideas like rendering Frontend Components in
the Backend as Server Components, eliminating the conflict between ERB and
JS frontend rendering technologies by leveraging highly readable,
maintainable, and productive Ruby code isomorphically."
