    Mirjam gave a talk on how dog training relates to test-driven development. She trained dogs for years before becoming a developer and is very passionate about testing and test-driven development. These two passions drove her to give this talk. The panel asks her a few questions about training developers and how training dogs relate to test-driven development. 


    They continue to discuss testing and what tests are best. Mirjam loves unit tests. She explains why she thinks they are the best. The panel brings up a tweet explaining that integrations were the best. They debate what are the best types of tests but they all agree in the end. Just test your applications.

    VoV 093: Vuetensils with Austin Gil

    VoV 093: Vuetensils with Austin Gil

    In this episode, the panel interviews Austin Gil, author of Vuetensils. Austin begins by explaining that Vuetensils is and why he wrote it. Vuetensils is a UI library filled with naked components that make it easy to build accessible apps. The panel explains that it is not as opinionated as other libraries making it easy to style yourself. 


    The panel discusses the need for accessibility and how painful it can be to write accessible apps. Austin explains that developers are what make accessibility hard. The web was designed to be accessible but incorporating design and style complicates it. Austins shares some of the components in Vuetensil and what they do for your app. 


    Vuetensils, Austin explains is designed to be as out of the way as possible while still giving you what you need. He explains how it differs from libraries like Vuetify and Bootstrap, with these tools you get everything. Vuetensils makes you choose the components you want, forcing you to stay lightweight. Vuetensils is ideal for small projects where you don’t need a lot of UI components. 


    Finally, the panel discusses the testing of Vuetensils. Austin explains that the library is still young and that he is still working on testing. He explains his plans for the future of Vuetensils and what it will take to get to a version 1 release. The panel discusses how to get started with Vuetensils and how to support it.

    VoV 092: Views on Vue at JAMstack Conf SF 2019

    In this episode of Views on Vue Charles Max Wood interviews speakers at JAMstack Conf SF His first interview is with Ire Aderinokun. Ire works for Buycoins, a cryptocurrency exchange for Africa. She gave a lightning talk, “Headless Chrome & Cloudinary for progressively enhanced dynamic content on the web”. After giving a brief overview of her talk to Charles, Ire defines progressive enhancement for the listeners. 


     


    Walking through how progressive enhancement works, she explains how Headless Chrome and Cloudinary helped her with the project she shared in the talk. Ire and Charles consider the blindspot that developers experience because they work on high-end devices and how using progressive enhancement helps those who use lower-end devices.


     


    Ire shares her experience with JAMstack and explains how progressive enhancement works with JAMstack. Charles shares his experience using JAMstack. The episode ends with Ire giving advice and resources to help get started with progressive enhancement. 


     


    Next, Charles interviews Shawn Erquhart work runs the Netlify CMS project. Charles share his experience using Netlify and Shawn address some of the issues Charles has come across. Charles does say the using Netlify is simple, clean and nice. Shawn shares the origin story of Netlify. They discuss what it means to be a git-based content management system. 


     


    They discuss how to contribute to the Netlify CMS open source project. Charles mentions his book and they discuss how contributions to open source projects like these are a great way to get a job. Shawn explains how to get started implementing Netlify CMS and how they target different static site generators. 


    Finally, Charles interviews Tammy Everts. Tammy gives listeners a sneak peek into her talk about website performance, more specifically JavaScript performance. Charles discusses the performance of Devchat.tv and Google Lighthouse scores. Tammy explains that while Google Lighthouse is good it isn’t completely reliable and can miss chunks of time when your JavaScript is failing and you have unhappy users.


    Tammy shares ways to drill down and see how your JavaScript is behaving in the wild. She talks about blocking Javascript which every developer is familiar with and non-blocking JavaScript that has high blocking CPU time which makes for janky sites. Tammy and Charles discuss what CPU is and what it measures. Tammy names resources and tools to help avoid this problem. 


    Rules of thumb for avoiding these issues are explained by Tammy. First, Reduce, make sure all the JavaScript needs to be there. Next, Monitor, track your metrics. She also suggests working with vendors and maintaining a performance budget for metrics that matter. The interview ends with a little about Speedcurve and what they do. Tammy is the CXO of Speedcurve.
