Welcome to JS Party, a weekly celebration of JavaScript and the web

JS Party JS Party #87

Websites should work without JS. Yep? Nope?

We’re trying a brand new segment called YepNope, wherein your intrepid panelists engage in a lively debate around a premise. In this debate, Feross and KBall argue that websites should work without requiring JS and Divya and Chris say, “Nah!”

Please let us know if you like this style episode! We had fun recording it, but that doesn’t matter much if y’all don’t enjoy listening to it.

Building PizzaQL at the age of 16

Jerod, Mikeal, and Feross welcome Antoni Kepinski to the show to discuss his open source pizza ordering management web app. We talk about learning programming at a young age, how overwhelming web development can be these days, how Antoni decided which technologies to use, and more. This is a super fun conversation with many insights and takeaways for developers at every stage of their career.

LIVE at ReactJS Girls

Emma Wedekind MC’d a live show at ReactJS Girls with a panel of 3 amazing women — Eve Porcello, Marcy Sutton, and Kate Beard. It was a great discussion covering the biggest challenges they’ve faced, how no matter who you are imposter syndrome occurs and never really goes away, ways to support and encourage under-represented groups and people to get into tech, and how to choose a topic when writing a talk.

When in doubt, log an issue

Nick and Mikeal catch up with Henry Zhu, the maintainer of Babel and host of the Maintainers Anonymous and Hope in Source podcasts. We discuss his path to open source maintainer-ship. We also chat about best practices for interacting with maintainers, while remembering that people are behind open source, and we talk self-care and avoiding burnout, culminating in a self-care repo being created to gather and discuss tips to care for yourself.
