Today, most startups using ​Ruby on Rails​ rely on​ front-end Javascript frameworks​ to deliver their apps' User Experience. But is it always necessary and what if tomorrow’s best-in-class apps could be almost ​Javascript free​ ?

David Heinemeier Hansson​, the creator of Rails, has agreed to talk with the ​French Ruby on Rails community about ​Hotwire​ as an alternative approach to building modern web applications. During an exclusive fireside chat with CX SaaS leader WizVille's co-founders, he will answer your questions about the potential and upcoming improvements of this new technology.

With guests from top Frenchtech Startups using Rails, in the likes of Algolia and Doctolib, the event will also cover the key pitfalls you need to avoid to prepare your Rails app to ​deliver high performance in the long run​, even as your roadmap keeps growing.

But David isn’t only the creator of our favorite web dev framework, he’s also a ​seasoned entrepreneur and thinker of the modern working world​. So we’ll take the opportunity to ask him about his thoughts on innovation in a COVID-19 world, and how to dream bigger as an entrepreneur without losing your soul.


WizVille is a French Startup that wants to help the Rails-powered Frenchtech ecosystem dream bigger, and wanted to share the latest and the hottest with the French Ruby on Rails community.
