I enjoy infrastructure and meaningful theoretical computer science, and if I can express that in JS that's great, but I would never want to be a web developer as a full career

— Maybe by 2020 we'll have actually stabilized the clusterfuck that is web dev standards

— Creator of ruby on rails

— :)

— I think something better and far simpler will come along and replace it all

— Surely

— Some highly optimized datapipeline system closely integrated with native C++ would be sweet

— No opinions, no rhetoric, just pure computer science applied neatly

— Exactly

— What we struggle with now is a lot of abstractions with no clear winner

— Some sort of connection pool + a realtime data protocol + native uis everywhere
