Tools and frameworks that aim to boost developer productivity are always worth a closer look, but we don’t often consider the trade-offs for whichever we settle on. In this episode, we discuss the questions one should be asking when evaluating developer productivity tools and frameworks in the Go ecosystem in particular.
Joining us to discuss is André Eriksson, the creator of Encore, a backend framework that aims to make development and deployment as productive as it can be.
Building desktop applications is tricky. Every OS has its own set of tools, and you often need to learn a new language for each. In this episode we talk with Wails creator Lea Anthony about how the build tool enables developers to create desktop apps using Go and their normal JS frontend (React, Vue, Anguluar, or whatever you want).
Blitz.js creator Brandon Bayer joins Jerod to dive deep into the foundational principles of this fullstack React framework. We talk about its inspiration (Ruby on Rails), its differentiation (a “no-API” data layer), and its aspirations (built-in auth, plugins, recipes, and more).
The quality of your thinking depends on your mental framework. To become a better thinker you need to have an understanding of this mental framework and how you view the world. But, what exactly is a mental framework? How have we all been programmed throughout our lives? In what ways have you been programed that you like, don’t like, or want to change? Join us as we explore and examine the key components of developing a mental framework.
Divya and Jerod welcome ZEIT founder Guillermo Rauch to the show for a deep discussion on the state of JAMstack, what’s new & exciting with Next.js, and some big picture analysis of where the industry is heading.
Tom Preston-Werner (co-founder of GitHub, board member at Netlify) joins the party and brings his new, opinionated, full-stack, serverless web app framework with him. Will Redwood help usher in the future Tom predicted back in 2018? We discuss that and a whole lot more on this must-listen episode.
KBall, Divya, and Chris talk about what’s going on in all the big frontend frameworks, share some pro tips, and shout out awesome people and things in the community.
Mat Ryer, Mark Bates, Johnny Boursiquot, and Aaron Schlesinger discuss web development in Go. Go is great at writing server technology, but how good is it for web development? We’ll talk about HTTP, templating, the front-end, Wasm, and we even discuss Buffalo with its creator, Mark Bates.
Suz Hinton, Alex Sexton, and Nick Nisi talk with Dylan Schiemann about Dojo 2.0, managing an open source project, web standards, and more.
