On this special edition of The Changelog, we tell Vim’s story from the mouths of its users. Julia Evans, Drew Neil, Suz Hinton, and Gary Bernhardt join Jerod Santo for a deep and wide-ranging discussion about “the best text editor that anyone ever wrote.”
Suz, Amal, and Chris join Jerod to discuss what APIs are all about, share some APIs they admire, and lay out principles and practices we can all use in our APIs.
Ben Ilegbodu joins Divya, Suz, & Amal to talk about introducing TypeScript at Stitch Fix, why TypeScript and React work well together, building component libraries, and more.
Justin Searls from Test Double joins the party to talk about patterns he’s identified that lead to failure, minimalism, and of course, testing!
In this episode, we dive into the role of communication as a developer, how clarity is driving impact and how to self publish as an independent writer. Join us, as we chat with Stephanie Morillo author of The Developers Guide to Content Creation about how to write better as developer and how writing can take you from good developer to great.
Jerod assembles a team of WebRTC experts (Suz, Feross, Mikeal) for a deep, deep dive on this practically-ubiquitous yet still-complicated web API.
We review its history, share really cool applications using the tech, provide an excellent primer on what you need to know about it, and details some production gotchas. ALSO we celebrate how Feross single-handedly “upgraded the internet”! 🙌
JS Danger is back! Suz, Emma, and Divya square off in our don’t-call-it-jeopardy game show. Will Emma totally redeem herself? Are Divya’s trivia skills as on point as her debate skills? Will Suz murder Jerod in a fit of terrible-question-inducing rage?! Listen and play along!
Emma, Divya, and Suz are joined by Quincy Larson from freeCodeCamp where they chat about virtual conferences. Are they better than in-person conferences? What are the differences? Let’s find out!
Today we’re featuring conversations from different perspectives on working from home from our JS Party, Go Time, and Brain Science podcasts here on Changelog.com. Because, hey…if you didn’t know we have 6 active podcasts in our portfolio of shows. Head to changelog.com/podcasts to collect them all!
With most of us working from home for the first time (or for a long time), we thought it’d be a good idea to share our experiences and opinions on how to manage it. We discuss how to optimize your location, your schedule, your communications, and the rest of you life during these stressful times.
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.
