Rob and JD catch up again after missing a week. Rob enjoys learning new things, and has focused his attention on new knowledge vs. progress for the sake of progress. His work with GraphQL for the Taskful 3 API rewrite is one example, and rebuilding his portfolio website with nuxt another. Rob is excited about Phoenix LiveView, and its equivalent in Rails called StimulusReflex. JD and Rob geek out hard over the current state of the Rails ecosystem, starting with StimulusReflex and A May of WTFs, before discussing their enjoyment of strongly typed languages and what that means for Ruby. Talking about DHH's keynote at RailsConf Couch Edition–and his interesting perspective on Ruby and its–benefits brings them to and what it might introduce to Rails. Could it be a framework to more easily build mobile apps for Rails applications? And from they dive deep into their email setups, in particular their experience with ProtonMail.
