ChicagoRuby: Downtown – Using View Models / Presenters in Rails


ChicagoRuby: Downtown – Using View Models / Presenters in Rails

April 5, 2016 from 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Join and RSVP to see location


Our Principal Architect, Karthik Muthupalaniappan, will speak at the ChicagoRuby User Group on View Models/Presenters in Rails and how they are a better solution over using vanilla helpers.

Helpers in Rails have always been second-class citizens. They have been abused in most Rails projects, burgeoning into unmaintainable chunks of code. This talk will explore how View models and Presenters can serve as a cleaner and much more elegant alternative to the use of conventional Rails helpers. It will also attempt to present situations where the two can be leveraged in a Rails project.
