KBall & Amal dive deep with the “Dazzle of Zebras” (possible future band name), Angular team members Jessica Janiuk & Mark “Techson” Thompson. Along with an absolute riot of puns, they cover topics such as Angular’s new deferrable views feature, how the Angular core team handles change, and lessons learned from the AngularJS-Angular 2 debacle that allow Angular to now move fast without breaking things.
KBall & Amal interview Alex & Pavel from the Angular Signals team. They cover the history, how the Angular team decided to move to signals, what the new mental model looks like, migration path & even dive into community integrations and future roadmap.
It’s our 5th annual New Year’s party! Jerod & the gang review our predictions from last year, discuss what’s trending in the web world, make a few predictions for 2024 & even set some new resolutions for this year.
JS Party listeners and panelists celebrate great moments from the last 100 episodes! You’ll hear from 14 of our favorite humans (and 1 horse) across 11 episodes. Here’s to our first 300 episodes and the next 300 as well. 🥂
Valerie Phoenix from Tech By Choice joins Amal & Kball to tell them all about her non-profit that’s passionate about helping people interested in technology, no matter their experience level.
Long time friend KBall makes his “first” appearance on The Changelog by way of Changelog & Friends. You likely know Kevin from his panelist position on JS Party. Today he’s sharing his passion for coaching and developing human skills.
With a name like PartyKit, you know we just had to get its founder and CEO Sunil Pai on the show! PartyKit is an open source tool that simplifies creating collaborative, multiplayer applications. Join us to learn all about it and the journey of Sunil and his team!
Amal, KBall & Chris convene a “semi-emergency” pod to discuss the recent (deserved) hype over Bun and what it all means for Node’s community, maintainers & users.
They’re joined by Node Technical Steering Committee members Matteo Collina & James Snell who are here to dispel Bun antagonism rumors, discuss the pros & cons of each runtime, explain how Node continues to thrive & even announce a VERY big upcoming feature!
KBall and Amal go deep on careers. They share their career journeys, talk through learnings and mishaps that happened along the way, and break down key factors to understand about big role transitions like “Senior->Staff” as well as “Engineer->Manager”.
Justin Fagnani joins us this week to talk about Lit, a library that helps you build web components. With 17% of pageviews in Chrome registering use of web components, Lit has gained widespread adoption across a variety of companies looking to create reusable components which leverage the power and interoperability of the web platform. Tune in to learn about what makes this tiny library so incredibly lit!
Let’s debate debugging techniques! Do you print debug or dive deep into debugging tools? KBall & Jerod argue that print statements are all you need while Amal & guest Eric Clemmons take the other side. Who will win and why will it be Jerod? 😉
The panel dives into all of the supporting structures that we build around writing code, what works in different environments, and good and bad practices they have seen. From PR etiquette to CI/CD to how to write a ticket, they look at them from an open source perspective, an enterprise perspective, and everything in between.
KBall interviews Nick Nisi about the Pandora’s box that is his tooling/developer setup. Starting at the lowest layer of the terminal emulator he uses, they move upwards into command line tools, into Tmux (terminals within terminals!), his epic NeoVim configuration, and finally into the tools he uses for notekeeping and productivity.
Nick is excited to explain CVA to us like we’re five (then again like we’re 41).
KBall is excited to share details of his new stack (for the new app he’s building).
Jerod is excited to share some recent news items (but he’s the only one).
And finally, we’re all excited to debate TypeScript vs JSDoc comments!
Nick & KBall sit down with the brilliant Stephen Haberman to discuss all things ORMs! 💻🔍
From the advantages and disadvantages of ORMs in general, to delving into the intricacies of his innovative project Joist, which brings a fresh, idiomatic, ActiveRecord-esque approach to TypeScript. 🚀
So sit back, relax, and let’s dive deep into the world of ORMs with the experts!
Dax Raad joins KBall and Nick to chat about SST, a framework that makes it easier to build full-stack applications on AWS. We chat about how the project got started and its goals. Then we discuss OpenNext, an open source, framework-agnostic server less adapter for Next.js.
The panel dives into a topic that makes most software developers cringe: Professional networking. Starting with a definition - what does it even mean? - they go into hacks they’ve found for getting more comfortable with networking, building your network in person or online, and then using your network to find new job opportunities or consulting work.
Grab a comfy seat and a hot cup of joe, because it’s time for some coffee talk with Nick & KBall! Special guest Thomas Eckert joins the party and brings a bunch of questions for us to discuss.
Who wins in a fist fight: Tailwind CSS people or “real” CSS people? Is Agile overrated? What’s the longest bug you’ve ever chased? How about some underrated libraries/packages that people should know about? And more!
Jerod & the gang catch you up on what’s new and poppin’ in the web development world. We go deep on GitHub Copilot X and the latest AI advancements, take a bathroom break while Nick talks about TypeScript 5 & continue the debate about the future of React.
