Panel: Charles Max Wood Special Guests: Evan Hahn In this episode, the JavaScript Jabber panelists discuss securing Express apps with Helmet.js with Evan Hahn. Evan is a developer at Airtable, which is a company that builds spreadsheet applications that are powerful enough that you can make applications with. He has also worked at Braintree, which does payment processing for companies. They talk about what Helmet.js is, when you would want to use it, and why it can help secure your Express apps. They also touch on when you wouldn’t want to use Helmet and the biggest thing that it saves you from in your code. In particular, we dive pretty deep on: Evan intro JavaScript What is Helmet.js? Node and Express Why would you use the approach of Middleware? Helmet is not the only solution Http headers Current maintainer of Helmet.js npm Has added a lot to the project, but is not the original creator Outbound HTTP response headers Helmet doesn’t fully secure your app but it does help secure it How does using Helmet work? Are there instances when you wouldn’t want to use Helmet? No cash middleware Where do you set the configuration options? Top level Helmet module 12 modules What is the biggest thing that Helmet saves you from? Content security policy code And much, much more!

Panel: Charles Max Wood Cory House Aimee Knight Special Guests: Ben Titzer In this episode, the JavaScript Jabber panelists discuss WebAssembly and JavaScript with Ben Titzer. Ben is a JavaScript VM engineer and is on the V8 team at Google. He was one of the co-inventors of WebAssembly and he now works on VM engineering as well as other things for WebAssembly. They talk about how WebAssembly came to be and when it would be of most benefit to you in your own code. In particular, we dive pretty deep on: Ben intro JavaScript Co-inventor of WebAssembly (Wasm) Joined V8 in 2014 asm.js Built a JIT compiler to make asm.js faster TurboFan What is the role of JavaScript? What is the role of WebAssembly? SIMD.js JavaScript is not a statically typed language Adding SIMD to Wasm was easier Easy to add things to Wasm Will JavaScript benefit? Using JavaScript with Wasm pros and cons Pros to compiling with Wasm Statically typed languages The more statically typed you are, the more you will benefit from Wasm TypeScript Is WebAssembly headed towards being used in daily application? Rust is investing heavily in Wasm WebAssembly in gaming And much, much more!

Panel: Joe Eames Cory House Aimee Knight Special Guests: Ben Clinkinbeard In this episode, the JavaScript Jabber panelists talk about D3.js with Ben Clinkinbeard. D3.js is a JavaScript library that has you use declarative code to tell it what you want and then it figures out all of the browser inconsistencies and creates the notes for you. He talks about the two main concepts behind D3, scales and selections, which once you understand make D3 a lot more user friendly. He then touches on SPGs and discusses his Learn D3 in 5 Days course. In particular, we dive pretty deep on: What is D3.js? Stands for Data Driven Documents JavaScript How much of the learning curve is attributed to learning D3? SPG 2 main concepts behind D3: scales and selections Is learning about SPGs a prerequisite to leaning D3? How serious are you talking when saying idiosyncrasies? SPG tag Understanding positioning in SPG Positions with CSS transforms Are you required to use SPG? Not required to use SPG with D3 Canvas SPG is vector based SPG utility function Responseivefy Learn D3 in 5 Days course Is there and overlap with D3 and React? And much, much more!

Panel: Charles Max Wood Cory House Aimee Knight Joe Eames AJ O'Neal In this episode, the JavaScript Jabber panelists talk about the Framework Summit. It was the brainchild of Merrick Christensen. This summit includes talks on multiple different frameworks all in a two-day conference, which allows you to get exposed to new frameworks while still learning more about the framework your job requires you to use. Another goal of the conference is that it will be able to open people’s eyes up to the different frameworks available to them and show that no one framework is superior to another. In particular, we dive pretty deep on: What is the Framework Summit? The framework you use plays a huge role in your programming For people who want to learn about more than one framework Allows you to explore The format of the conference Park City, Utah in October 2018 Helps you answer which framework should you use? Goal is to open people’s eyes up to other frameworks Decrease internet arguments over which framework is better Fluent Conference Get to have conversation with other people who work in your framework Making connections React Rally Talk Evan Czaplicki The context matters Being able to deep dive into the different frameworks Using frameworks in conjunction with one another Have you seen “religionist” themes in programming frameworks? Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion by Jonathan Haidt Some people will never look beyond their frameworks If it’s working, why would you mess with it? And much, much more!

Panel: Charles Max Wood Aimee Knight Joe Eames AJ O'Neal Special Guests: Orta Therox In this episode, the JavaScript Jabber panelists talk about the tool Danger with Orta Therox. Danger allows you to create cultural rules about your pole request workflow. They discuss what Danger is, how it works, and how it can help you to catch errors and speed up code review. Danger lets you erase discussions so that you can focus on the things that you should really be focusing on, like the code. They also compare Danger to other ways of doing test converge. In particular, we dive pretty deep on: What is DangerJS? Think of it as being on the PR level Provides an eval context Used on larger projects React, React Native, Apollo, and RxJS Experimenting with moving Danger onto a server Danger can run as a linting step Pre-commit hooks Prettier How do you use Danger on your own machine? Danger Ruby vs Danger JS NPM install How is using Danger better that other ways of test coverage? What kinds of rules can you write for this system? Can use with Ruby or JavaScript React Storybooks Retrospectives And much, much more!
