65: Advent of Whiskey: State of JS and Microsoft's Legacy

Show Notes

The Javascript landscape is ever-changing. We can always rely on the State of JS survey to keep up with the latest trends and changes in the space. According to Robbie, Microsoft seems to be at the forefront of that change.

Microsoft holds the lion’s share of platforms and products in Javascript development including VS Code and GitHub. It’s hard not to rely on Microsoft as a developer. It’s also hard to find someone who doesn’t love the Xbox. But even though they’ve come a long way and given us great inventions, there’s still plenty of room to improve. Especially where developer experience and enterprise products are concerned.

In this episode, Chuck and Robbie talk about results from the State of JS survey, and Microsoft’s legacy of successful gaming versus failed enterprise products.
