PyCon Estonia - HTMX vs WASM more backend or frontend?

This talk discusses the history of WASM, the Iodide project, and the rise of Pyodide and PyScript alongside the HTMX library, demonstrating their usage. It invites you to reconsider their application-building approaches and questions the need for JavaScript in web development. You will explore several popular tools in recent years, making them rethink their approach to building their applications. Hopefully, by seeing the live demos, you are encouraged to try these tools and learn more about the use case and how it can help them in future projects.
