Abstract talk
When we work in companies of many engineers spanning different teams and different projects, how can we stay on the same page? Isn’t the dream for a codebase to look like it’s been written by one person? In the evolving nature of the front-end, what are the best ways for teams to stay up-to-date? There are many possible options, but this talk will go through how we do this at FutureLearn. Utilising our culture of learning to keep up-to-date on topics from updates to ECMAScript, to wilder concepts like generative art.
