React Podcast

Conversations about React with your favorite developers.

Versioning. How do we do it? It's a lot more complicated than "just use semver!" This week Michael Jackson joins us again to discuss the pains of versioning, how to avoid them, and why it all comes down to communication.

Chantastic asks about upcoming how React Router v5 will take advantage of new features like Hooks and what versioning strategy they intend to employ with for legacy React Router users.

They fumble clumsily around what the various characters in a package.json file mean, discuss outrageous prefixing as a defense mechanism, and partying at the 2019 JSConfUS in Carlsbad.

Nader Dabit is the author on React Native in Action, Host of React Native Radio, Educator, Speaker, and doing developer relations for AWS Cloud.

Chantastic asks about Amplify and AppSync, where they fit into AWS offerings, why they make authentication and GraphQL server setup a breeze, and how we can start using them.

They discuss the opportunity and difficulty in podcast, the challenges of author a book, and travel the world speaking and educating.

Jamon Holmgren is CTO and cofounder of Infinite Red, a consultancy that specializes in React Native.

Chantastic asks about Jamon's start in programming and entrepreneurship, why consultancies have an edge in Open Source, and how the Chain React conference plays into their business strategy.

They discuss the team benefits of TypeScript, humble PHP beginnings, and the big differences between consultancy and product.

Sara is a developer on the beloved CodeSandbox app. She's worked for years as a developer advocate, giving brilliant talks across the world, and building some of the wildest sites on the web.

Chantastic asks her about succeeding against mental illness, how she achieved meme status, why we should "build dumb shit", and what the heck a developer advocate does.

They discuss corporate "change the world" bullshit, casual racism, why you should teach what you know, and the shockingly unglamorous lifestyle of a conference speaker.

Typescript. What is it? How does it help you write better code? Will it help you sleep better at night?

Jared is a lead engineer at The Palmer Group, a strategy, design, and engineering firm. There he uses TypeScript every day to keep code sturdy and maintainable.

Chantastic asks Jared what we need to know to get a little TypeScript into our apps. They discuss the joys and pains of Typescript in 2019 and how it compares to languages like Reason, Ocaml, Fable, and Elm.
