Can we still innovate?

by Piotr Solnica
Rails revolutionized the way we build web apps - but that was 10 years ago. These days, it's not uncommon to hear dramatic statements like, “Rails is dead” or even, “Ruby is dead”. Even though such conclusions are far-fetched, it’s a sign that some people have become tired of struggling with various problems that Rails doesn’t address.
We’re starting to see people leave Ruby - should you do the same? Or is there a place in the Ruby world where we can still innovate and prove that Ruby is a viable technological choice?
In this talk, I’ll introduce you to the growing ecosystem of modern Ruby libraries and frameworks. Let’s go beyond Rails and see that Ruby is doing just fine.
