This week we'll be talking about the ECMAScript #private field proposal and how its implementation affects TypeScript—which already has a type of private field that uses the private keyword.
Josh Thomas and Adam Bradley join us from Ionic to talk about the Ionic component library and Stencil, a toolchain for building reusable components.
Alex Russell joins us from Google, where he works on Chrome and the web platform, to discuss calls to put every conceivable framework into the browser.
The team shares their initial thoughts on the GitHub Package Registry and discusses their experiences writing full stack TypeScript using Nest, an opinionated TypeScript framework for the back end.
Paul and Neil talk to new SitePen team members, Sam Menza and Eric Osmundson, about their experiences joining a remote company and how TypeScript helps accelerate the onboarding process.
The team discusses Tito and its architecture, from its early days using Rails and CoffeeScript, to it's current use of Rails with modern JS including Vue and custom elements.
We learn about the history of class fields, why many potential approaches to private fields fail to offer strong encapsulation, and why the # symbol was used as a prefix for private fields.
