If you've only ever experienced web development through a web framework, you're missing out. Have you ever been tempted to rewrite a codebase in your favorite framework? That's a smell that you need to come to this talk.

Being comfortable developing without a framework is a crucial skill to have for refactoring legacy applications. In this talk I show you how to harness the power of going "frameworkless" so you'll feel empowered to make better decisions in your next web project. Be set free from your web-framework ball and chain.

This talk was one of the highlights of the conference for me. It got me thinking completely differently about modernizing our legacy apps. Sammy is obviously very a practiced speaker, his style is engaging and clear. The only thing I would change about the talk is to have a little less emphasis on the _why_ and a little more on the _how_ but that's honestly a quibble in the context of a 50 minute talk.

This was really an innovative idea.
Opens up possibilities.
I am coming from the customizes code world to frameworks (OK backwards to many, but I was around before frameworks).
This showed me how the two methods can play together.
