BridgetownConf 2022 was held on
Monday, November 7, 2022. Watch the recorded talks below and join a chorus of friendly Ruby & Web developers from around the world who are using the Bridgetown framework to build modern, fast, ergonomic production deployments.
With three major releases of Bridgetown rounding out 2022, it's been a busy year! In the opening keynote of BridgetownConf, you'll learn what's new in the latest version of Bridgetown, including the all-new initialization and configuration system which will enable a new class of plugin. You'll also learn about upcoming milestones in the plugin ecosystem and how Bridgetown can power your online publishing hub.
Bridgetown is the future of building static and progressive websites with Ruby, and the future is now! We will look at the current landscape of static site generators and how the industry is evolving as Server Side Rendering and Dynamic Rendering become more popular. We will also look at other Ruby based static site generators to see what the other options are and why you should choose Bridgetown.
Bridgetown shines as a static site generator, but it’s so much more than that. In this talk we’ll discuss the content engine which underpins Bridgetown, how to customise it, and add a sprinkle of dynamic interaction.
How does an open source project begin? How do you contribute to an open source project? How do you overcome imposter syndrome? What does it mean to be part of Bridgetown’s “core team”? These questions and more will be answered in this panel.
In this talk we will go over how Bridgetown can be a great solution to offer
your clients for their company websites and how it can be expanded to a blog
using Prismic CMS using the official Bridgetown-Prismic plugin.
In this talk, you'll see a demonstration of how to pull Active Record into a Bridgetown site to handle database access through domain models, how to write dynamic endpoints using Roda, how to provide advanced user interactivity using Turbo, and how to render forms declaratively using objects powered by the new gem Lifeform.
