    Can JAMstack do REAL Web Apps? with James Q Quick - JSJ 517

    Can JAMstack do REAL Web Apps? with James Q Quick - JSJ 517

    But really…can it? It absolutely can AND a lot more. In this new episode of JavaScript Jabber, the roundtable sits down with James Q Quick, a software developer, podcast host, and overall future-enthusiast. The team discusses what the “JAM” in JAMstack means for developers, how it’s making integrating features (like payment processing) a breeze, and what you NEED to know about JAMstack going into 2022.


    “None of these individual tools are new, but JAMstack just became a new way to combine those things with static content and leverage those concepts.”
    - James Quick


    In This Episode

    Why JAMstack is more than just individual pieces clumped together (and could be replacing how developers do business)
    How the “JAM” in JAMstack is allowing developers to pick and choose the services they want (without knowing all the nitty gritty details)
    James lays out how JAMstack makes payment processing a no-brainer (and it’s not just Twitter hype)
    New features and apps for JAMstack that you NEED to know in 2022
    Where JAMstack is shows its power and ease-of-use (and why you should have some “secret sauce” in your cabinet)

    Simplifying Slinkity with Anthony Campolo

In this episode, the JavaScript jamboree sits down with Anthony Campolo, a software developer who’s spreading the word about a powerful yet flexible new tool--Slinkity. They talk about how Slinkity answers the age-old question and simplifies everything, how to prevent the nasty “uncanny valley” from rearing its head during loading, and why eBay and Slinkity are on the same page about “the basics”.


    “I think Slinkity is an interesting new way to build websites in a framework-agnostic way. It’s like using little sprinkles of JavaScript!”



    Anthony Campolo

    If you’re feeling overwhelmed by all these new frameworks, Anthony explains how Slinkity simplifies it all
    How to effectively use Slinkity’s bundling capabilities with Vite and other tools
    What tools and techniques you need to prevent an “uncanny valley” from popping up every time you sit down to program

    HTMX and InterCooler ft. Carson Gross - JSJ 513

    Carson Gross is the creator of InterCooler and HTMX. He pulled them together to manage the way that he wrote JavaScript and interacted with hypermedia and HATEOAS to make managing the DOM and backend easier.






    It's not really a competitor to web frameworks as much as a different way to think about the front-end of your application.

Helpful

The episodes are hit or miss (sometimes they go in depth, other times they stay at a high level) but overall I’ve been able to learn lots of relevant tidbits that help keep me up to speed on the JS ecosystem.

A great overview of what’s going on in JavaScript

In October I decided I would listen to every episode of this podcast and just this week (December) finally caught up. It was really interesting seeing the discussions move from Backbone, Knockout, Angular.js, and Ember to mostly React essentially overnight in 2015. It was also interesting to listen to predictions about how es6 would be adopted and how some people correctly predicted that this would lead to build systems and JavaScript becoming a compilation target. Also it was interesting to me that the web component spec was discussed in 2012 and in almost 2019 it had yet to see wide adoption.
I really love the personal touch this podcast, with things like AJ ONeils reoccurring intro gag, the bacon convention, all of the board games, and the picks section. It’s also nice to see a lot of less popular libraries and frameworks covered rather than just the same old stuff. The breadth of topics leads to a large variety of things to add to the “maybe ill check that out” list. Also most importantly all of the people in the panel seem to be really sincere and that matters.
I’ll definitely continue listening to this podcast and would definitely recommend it to anyone’s interested in what’s going on in JavaScript.

Side tangent: the podcast

I like this podcast. It CAN be quite informative and often dives into specific subjects for an entire episode where other shows might just touch these subjects as they come up, as one part of a group of subjects, etc.

The problem is, though an entire show might be based around a concept, you’ll listen to the whole show and not really feel any more informed on it. Most episodes turn into a series of “well ACTUALLYYYY”’s.

Secondly, discussion happens on an extremely macro level. It’s tough to translate code to audio, but they can definitely be better about discussing real life scenarios you might use whatever. Part of this is on the guest, admittedly, but if the guest isn’t getting into the weeds, I think the panelists should try to get them there. I think as a listener, most people would prefer that to a game of “stump the other panelists/guests”.

Panelists: no one cares about the random irrelevant environment that x doesn’t ACTUALLY work in. There is nothing wrong with discussing a side topic if it comes up naturally and is “danger zone listeners need to know this for real”. But I’m sure around a quarter of the content of every episode is irrelevant information.

Sorry if this review is harsh, I do like the show, I just want it to be better. I’m tired of seeing a subject in an episode title, getting excited, then an hour later feeling like it was a waste.
