Setting Up Webpack with Rails

“In Ruby on Rails, convention over configuration is the paradigm. The convention in Rails for managing JavaScript dependencies is metacomments in JavaScript manifest files. The scripts are then loaded by Sprockets. While this works great for smaller applications, larger applications have more dependencies.

Any reorganization beyond adding files to the list is a pain, because you need to search your entire JavaScript codebase to know where a script is being used.”

    Brigade Ambassadors

    A Brave New Tech-Centered Democracy. Brigade’s CEO Matt Mahan will host a high level talk with Q&A that will articulate the problem with our current political system in a thoughtful way and challenge attendees to imagine a future where they are truly at the center of their democracy. In short, we believe the problems of low voter turnout; diminished trust in elected officials and government institutions; and average citizens’ lack of awareness about civic issues are all symptoms of a more fundamental breakdown in our democracy. They are forces that take root and grow slowly over time, and that call for a paradigm shift of the kind that only new technologies can spark. Brigade invites attendees to come prepared with questions and to share their own experiences with the current state of technology in our democracy.
