Talks: 2021 Friday, October 22 HTMX: Frontend Revolution by Thomas Güttler ( )


On youtube


About This Talk

I developed my first CGI script in 1998. Since that day I have seen a lot of hypes coming and going.

The talk will consist of three parts:

  • My humorous odyssey of trying to find a great frontend framework

  • Retrospective: What do I want from the frontend ?

  • I finally found: HTMX: HTML Fragments over the wire

  • How to use HTMX with Django

Besides simplicity, good Web Vitals performance (SEO) is a benefit of this method.

The talk will express my personal opinion, feelings and fun. It won’t dive into technical details.
