We all know that Rails is great for building traditional web applications that serve dynamic HTML pages. But more and more, people are reaching to other tools, like Node.js, when they build web applications with a lot of logic in the client. People often use the argument that when you remove the view helpers, there isn’t much of value left in Rails.
In fact, because the Rails framework made an early bet on the REST architecture, it is extremely productive for building applications that mostly communicate over HTTP using JSON payloads. In this talk, Yehuda will talk about what makes Rails so good as the server for rich clients, and how to structure your application to take the most advantage of these properties.
