Two Introductory Talks: mruby & stimulus.js

VitalSource Technologies Inc 227 Fayetteville Street , Raleigh, (map)

This month, we're meeting a week later (enjoy this month's Modern Web meetup!). We have two shorter-length talks we'll be presenting back-to-back. Both are introductions to something new.

The first, by Phi Sanders, will cover mruby for building command-line applications (and maybe a little bit more). mruby is a lightweight, embeddable Ruby interpreter. Find out what kind of use cases mruby might be suited for.

The second, by Nathan L. Walls, will take a look at the recently announced Stimulus.js framework, in the context of a Rails application. Stimulus bills itself as a "modest" framework. We'll take an introductory look through what Stimulus does and what it doesn't do and compare it (briefly) with React.
