From 200K Lines of CoffeeScript to Zero

Convert the code by hand? Use the CoffeeScript compiler? Or, use decaffeinate? We started with CoffeeScript in 2013, and that was the right choice at the time. The JavaScript language was at a standstill, and CoffeeScript overhauled JavaScript by introducing lots of cool features. It certainly had problems, but it was the best there was.

DHH's latest is sure to be controversial: A modest JavaScript framework for the HTML you already have Modest in scope, perhaps, but not in prescription.

Parcel 📦🚀

Blazing fast, zero configuration web application bundler With emphasis on the zero configuration, this tool differentiates from webpack by focusing on developer experience. Smart move. Webpack is a lot of (awesome) things, but 'dead simple to get started' is not one of them.

Why Is GraphQL So Cool? with Johannes Schickling

Johannes Schickling (Founder of Graphcool) joined the show to talk about GraphQL — an application layer query language from Facebook. We talked about what it is, where it makes sense to use it, its role in serverless architectures, getting docs for free via Schemas and Types, and the community that's rallying around this new way to think about APIs.
