Today we’re joined by Jessica Lord, talking about the origins of Electron and her boomerang back to GitHub to lead GitHub Sponsors. We cover the early days of Electron before Electron was Electron, how she advocated to turn it into a product and make it a framework, how it’s used today, why she boomeranged back to GitHub to lead Sponsors, what’s next in funding open source creators, and we attempt to answer the question “what happens to open source once it’s funded?”
Mikeal Rogers, Alex Sexton, and Jessica Lord talk with James Snell (Node.js TSC Director) about the release of Node.js version 8. Then, in the second half of the show, we discuss Glitch and their new “raise your hand” feature and building a community around education. Our project of the week is Tad!
Mikeal Rogers, Rachel White, and Alex Sexton talk with Rebecca Turner and Kat Marchán about npm@5 and Jessica Lord about Sheetsee.
