Episode 57 – TypeScript At Scale

Have you ever imagined what it’s like for an organization to have its own JS runtime environment? In this episode of TalkScript, we talk with Rob Palmer and Michael Molisani from Bloomberg about their experiences with the company’s custom runtime environment, how they manage typescript projects at scale, and finally, what’s it like to be part of the ECMAScript standardization process.

Spoiler: It’s not quite the meeting of the Galactic Alliance but it’s close.
