SkillsCast

Building JavaScript for JavaScripters

23rd May 2019 in London at CodeNode

This SkillsCast was filmed at Keynote by Cassidy Williams on Building JavaScript for JavaScripters

Developers are smart, clever people, for better or for worse. They're also among the pickiest people ever when it comes to their own workflow.

At CodePen, the team's main goal is to reduce the need for a workflow setup to quickly prototype, build, and/or show off your code. Cassidy recently built out one of the team's latest releases: an entirely new Babel processor from scratch. In this talk, she'll go through the reasoning behind the processor, how Babel plugins work, how the processor was added into the Pen editor, and the potential future for CodePen with the processor in place.
