S1 E23: It's nice to build for the future (Zack / @ScriptedAlchemy)
Play • 24 min

Zack Jackson joins the show to talk about his origin story, from not doing well in high school, to teaching himself programming and becoming a core contributor to one of the most essential front-end development tools available: Webpack, as well as being a co-creator of Webpack Module Federation.

We discuss the benefits of being involved in really technical work in open source, and the benefits it has on your day job. His passion for working on distributed architectures and how he accidentally built a self-healing server using Module Federation. We also discuss state management using Recoil and how that helps decouple your application logic from the state.
