The JS Party crew discuss static site generators, our experiences with them, and what the future might hold for this ever-evolving technology.
KBall, Chris, Nick, and Safia discuss how they keep a healthy relationship with dependencies in their codebase. Listen to learn how they decide when to use third-party dependencies, how they verify and validate dependencies, and how to support the ecosystem of open source libraries.
Safia, Nick, Jerod, and Chris get together to talk about documentation. Documentation is essential in our work but it can be difficult to get buy in. The crew talks about how you can get others to care about it in your organization, tools that make documentation easier, and some examples of companies doing it right.
Suz, Safia, and Kball get together to talk about accessibility; what does it mean, why should we care, and what tools and resources can we use to better educate ourselves, and improve our work.
Safia Abdalla continues her excellent series of “what happens when” posts, this time tackling
One thing I’m sure everyone has done on the command line is to use the
!!shortcut to run the command run previously with sudo.
Don’t be so sure, Safia. It took me literally years of command-lining around before I learned that trick. I bet you taught more than a few people about its existence with this very article. 👌
Jerod Santo, Safia Abdalla, Nick Nisi, and Kevin Ball talk about progressive web apps. What are they, what do they do, what are some practical ways of using them, and more.
The party is back! In this episode, we talk about what we love about JS, Tabler and admin UI’s, and shoutouts to some of our favorite projects and people.
Safia Abdalla breaks down her nuanced answers to that often multi-faceted question. Namely, she answers it differently depending on your goals, which I is on point. 🎯
Do you want to get in to open source to find mentors? To improve your technical skills? To improve your empathy and communication skills? Different goals, different advice.
We had the pleasure of meeting up with Safia last year at OSCON. You can hear the conversation we had on this anthology episode where we discussed the future of open source.
I saw this tweet (see below) and wanted to help amplify it.
I’m still looking for my first full-time, post-grad engineering gig.
I’m looking for SE roles in Chicago/remote starting in early April.
Let me know if you’d like to interview me!
We think Safia is awesome. Hire her. You can view Safia’s résumé here.
This is an anthology episode from OSCON 2017 featuring awesome conversations with Kelsey Hightower (OSCON Co-Chair and Developer Advocate at Google Cloud Platform), Safia Abdalla (Open Source Developer and Creator of Zarf), and Mike McQuaid and Nadia Eghbal (GitHub Open Source Programs).
