Did you know Feross taught Web Security at Stanford last Fall? On this episode, Divya and Nick enroll in his security school to learn about XSS, CSP, ambient authority, and a whole lot more.
Then Feross shares his new app, Nick talks fiction books, and Jerod switches coding fonts.
This week Feross and Emma chat with Segun Adebayo about Chakra UI, a modular React component library that’s changing the game for design systems and app development.
We are a party-themed podcast, so FUN is at the heart of every episode. One way we keep things fun is by mixing it up and trying new things.
We play games like JS Jeopardy… (clip from episode #112)
debate hot topics like should websites work without JS… (clip from episode #87)
discuss and analyze the news… (clip from episode #94)
share wisdom we’ve collected over the years… (clip from episode #106)
interview amazing devs like John Resig and Amelia Wattenberger… and a whole lot more.
Oh, and did I mention we record the show live? You can be part of the hijinx each and every Thursday at changelog.com/live.
This is JS Party! Please listen to a recent episode that piques your interest and subscribe today. We’d love to have you with us.

In this episode we’re shining our maintainer spotlight on Feross Aboukhadijeh. Feross is the creator and maintainer of 100’s of open source projects which have been downloaded 100’s of million of times each month — projects like StandardJS, BitMidi, and WebTorrent to name a few. This episode with Feross continues our maintainer spotlight series where we dig deep into the life of an open source software maintainer. We’re producing this series in partnership with Tidelift. Huge thanks to Tidelift for making this series possible.
Adam adds a twist to our YepNope format this week. Instead of 2v2, it’s 1v1v1 with Mikeal reppin’ team Yep, Divya on team Nope, and Feross sitting in the middle on team It Depends. You don’t want to miss this excellent debate/discussion all about JS tooling complexity.
New frameworks built all the time
Config hell. Webpack
Jerod, Feross, and Nick discuss the latest npm security fiasco, opine on the strengths and weaknesses of spreadsheets, explain CORS like they’re 5 (sorta), and give shout outs to deserving purveyors of fine software.
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!”
