JS Party JS Party

This is JS Party!

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.

All the stale things

Divya leads a deep discussion with Jerod, KBall, and Nick on what’s stagnating in browsers. What has remained the same in browser tech over the last 20 years that remains a pain point in working with browsers? For example - Focus in browsers hasn’t changed much in 20 years. Why is that and how do we go about making all the stale things in browser tech better?

You're probably using streams

This week we chat with Matteo Collina, Technical Director at NearForm and member of the Node.js Technical Steering Committee, about his upcoming Node+JS Interactive talk on Node Streams. We talk about their creation before any standards and how they are one of the bedrock APIs used throughout the Node ecosystem. We also talk about WHATWG streams and some of their key differences, and how streams have gotten easier to work with thanks to the addition of async iterators and generators to the language.

Performant Node desktop apps with NodeGui

What if you could have an Electron-like app framework without the Chromium dependency and resulting performance woes? Well, now you can. NodeGui is a Qt5-powered, cross-platform, native app GUI framework for JavaScript with CSS-like styling. In this episode, Jerod and Nick sit down with Atul –author of NodeGUI and NodeGUI React– to learn about this exciting framework. We ask him a zillion and one questions about it.
