Webinar: “Simple, Fast Frontends with htmx” with Carson Gross

The web has changed in recent years. Modern websites mean lots of JavaScript on the frontend, sometimes supplanting HTML all together. You’re left with a pile of npm dependencies, wondering if it will work in future years.

It doesn’t have to be that way. In this hands-on webinar, we introduce htmx, part of a recent trend to slim down frontends and return to the original principles of the web, while still providing faster interactivity. htmx has taken off recently, and Carson Gross, its creator, is dropping by to explain the why, how and what.

With htmx, you use HTML — yes, HTML — as the organizing idea. We’ll give you an orientation, then show lots of examples in action. Carson is a WebStorm fan, and since his motto is the HOWL stack — Hypertext On Whatever Language — he and Paul will collaborate to show usage on plain servers and Python backends.
