Use The Platform

Front-end frameworks like Angular, React, and Ember are popular for building web apps, but are they essential? We'll look at how leveraging native browser capabilities with decoupled tools can provide long-term flexibility and maintenance.

This was a talk given at the 2017 Des Moines Web Geeks Social Event.

The presentation can be viewed at eheikes.github.io/use-the-platform-talk, or from the dist folder in this repository.
