Node.js development began a bit like the Wild West, but over time idioms, anti-patterns, and best practices have emerged. Yoni Goldberg’s Node Best Practices repo on GitHub collects, documents, and explains the best practices for Node developers. On this episode, Yoni joins us to discuss.
Mikeal and Chris welcome (back) special guest Fred K. Schott, who you may recall from our episode on Pika. This time, we’re talking ESM: what it is, what’s new about it, why it’s the future, writing libraries with it, and much more.
Node 14, Vue’s Vite, and
is-promise are in the news. We’ve got some working from home tips and unpopular opinions to share. And… shout outs! 👏
At Node+JS Interactive… the talks are all quite attractive. From transpilation dread… to awesome worker threads. This conf is surely impactive!
ES Modules are unflagged in Node 13. What does this mean? Can we use them yet? We chat with Mikeal, our resident expert, and find out.
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.
In this episode we’re shining our maintainer spotlight on Valeri Karpov. Val has been the solo maintainer of Mongoose since 2014. This episode with Val 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.
Special guest Nick O’Leary joins us this episode to chat about the Node-RED project, how it started, and the fascinating uses cases for it out in the wild. We go into some of the technical challenges behind designing easy to use interfaces for hardware, and ask Nick what the future of Node-RED looks like.
With the jumping off point of KBall’s question: “What are best practices for organizing a Node project?” Mikeal and Feross drop an incredible amount of wisdom about Node, organizing using modules, release management, deployment approaches, how to adopt change, and more.
KBall and Nick sync up with Node.js core contributor Ujjwal Sharma to dive deep into how to get into the world of open source software.
KBall MC’d a live show at NodeConf Colombia with a panel of 4 experts from the Node community — Kat Marchán, Anna Henningsen, Ruben Bridgewater, and James Snell. It was a great discussion about the future of Node.js and the Node.js ecosystem.
KBall, Emma, and Chris explain some things to each other like we’re five, bring stories of the week, and share some sweet pro tips.
Big week! KBall, Nick, and JBall (nooch) dive deep in to the 2018 Node.js user survey results. What does it all mean?! They also review Ryan Dahl’s “10” regrets about Node and sound off on Microsoft’s assimilatio… err… acquisition of GitHub.
Suz Hinton, Christopher Hiller, and Jerod Santo talk with Adam Baldwin about his company being acquired by NPM, the security of Node, best practices, and more.
In this episode Michael Jackson talks with Jared Palmer about Razzle, After.js, Formik, several other open source libraries from Jared, as well as Typescript and the implications of the upcoming async APIs in React.
In this episode of The Future of Node series recorded at Node Interactive 2016 Adam talked with Mikeal Rogers about the backstory of Node over the past few years to get to where we are today. We talked about io.js (the fork of Node), what’s happened in the community and the code since that time frame, how The Node.js Foundation has helped to solidify the foundation on which the Node ecosystem is being built on, initiatives and focuses in the near future, and more.
In this episode of The Future of Node series recorded at Node Interactive 2016 Adam talked with Rachel White, Technical Evangelist at Microsoft, about Node, IoT, robotics. We talked about making robots, inspiring developers to try new things, having fun as a developer, letting go of imposter syndrome, RFID implants, and making stuff for fun outside of our day to day jobs.
Mark Nadal joined the show to talk about his hacker story and his venture backed open source datastore project called GunDB — a realtime, decentralized, offline-first, graph database engine. We talked about the details behind this database, how Mark secured funding, why yet another datastore, who’s using the database, how Mark plans to sustain this project through products and services, his thoughts on the RethinkDB postmortem and more.
In this episode of The Future of Node series recorded at Node Interactive 2016 Adam talked with Tracy Hinds, the Education Community Manager for the Node.js Foundation about the efforts being made towards a safer, inclusive community and their events, open source documentation and tooling for conferences, and everything in-between.
In this anthology episode we’re featuring three awesome hacker stories from OSCON, All Things Open, and Node Interactive — Giovanni Caligaris about how he brought LibreOffice to the people of Paraguay by translating it to their native tongue. Stu Keroff about the Linux user group he started for kids called The Asian Penguins. Shiya Luo about how China does Node, translations of documentation and books from English to Chinese, and the Great Firewall of China.
In this episode of The Future of Node series recorded at Node Interactive 2016 Adam talked with Sam Roberts (Node Runtimes at IBM) and Thomas Watson (Node.js Lead at Opbeat) about “Small Core” and keeping Node Core small, what to put in, what to take out, how to deprecate and everything in-between.
In this special episode recorded at Node Interactive 2016 in Austin, TX Adam talked with James Snell (IBM Technical Lead for Node and member of Node’s TSC and CTC) about the work he’s doing on Node’s implementation of http2, the state of http2 in Node, what this new spec has to offer, and what the Node community can expect from this new protocol.
Scott Hammond, the CEO of Joyent, joined the show to talk about the history of Node, Joyent’s interest in Node, how they’ve handled the stewardship of Node over the years, their support of io.js joining Node Foundation, the convergence of the code bases for a stronger more inclusive Node community.
At the tail end of the show, just when you think it’s over, keep listening because we got Scott back on the call to discuss the news that came this week of the io.js TC voting to join Node Foundation.
