Rewriting a JS Library That Runs on a Billion Devices With Netto Farah

On this episode of React Wednesdays we welcome Netto Farah (@nettofarah), who helped rewrite an 8-year-old JavaScript analytics library that runs on billion devices every day.

Netto’s writeup on the rewrite is pretty amazing, and includes details like testing JavaScript on a Nintendo Wii, and how they went about testing on 160 different client-side destinations. It’s all pretty fascinating, so we invited Netto on to tell his story, and to ask him questions. Come hang out!

Shannon Hicks (@iotashan) joined us because he’s good at React Native, and having a person good at React Native is just good life advice in general.

We also talked about Kevin, which is a tool to help you with webpack, and not a person. Well, I mean, there are people named Kevin too, but we weren’t concerned with them for this episode.
