In this episode, Adam talks to Ryan Toronto about his journey from being a full stack Rails developer to focusing on single page applications, and why application developers should be betting on UI-focused frameworks like Ember, React, and Vue.
- How modernizing a Flash app drove Ryan to start building SPAs
- How products are really just user interfaces to the end user, and why that means it makes sense to make the UI the core of your codebase
- Why the backend will continue to be commoditized and application developers will be spending more and more of their time in the UI
- What makes something a web app instead of a website, and why almost everything is actually an app
- Why application developers still need to write server-side code right now and what areas have the biggest room for innovation and improvement
