How would you explain TypeScript to a novice programmer?
What do you think about recent Facebook ReactJS License controversy? Do you think it's a blow to the OSS world?
How would businesses and startups believe in OSS projects built by big companies like Microsoft, Facebook, Google, etc. in future?
Hi Brian, It's awesome to see you!
What are the few dev tools (software and hardware) you cannot live without and carry with you always? :)
Thanks for doing the AMA Brian, I would like to know what inspired you to become a developer
How would you describe your own experience with TC39?
For example, what happens during a meeting? How much time do you dedicate to TC39-related work?
Do you think TypeScript will be the standard for writing types in ES7/ ES8/ ES9 or whatever in near future?
Hello Brian, thanks for doing this AMA.
These are my questions:
What are some exciting features we can watch out for in ES.Next?
Can you tell us briefly how TC39 works and how are meetings arranged/handled?
Thanks for doing this.
Hi Brian, Have you tried ReactJS library? What are your thoughts on it?
Hey Brain, thanks for doing AMA, my question to you is what's the performance benefit of Chakra over V8?
Why would you choose TypeScript over CoffeeScript?
What major changes, if any, should we look out for in the consequent ECMAScript releases?
What are the few things missing in ES6 and you would like to see in future upgrades?
What did you use in your recent project? ES6 or ES5? And why?
How and when did you start your career as a programmer? Would you mind telling us about your story?
Should new developers learn ES6 directly or should they grasp old JS first?
I have seen TC39 proposals in Github. On what basis you guys will accept the proposals?
Recently I have come to know that ~~5.3 == Math.floor(5.3).
I think Math.floor() gives better readability. What do you think about that?
What tools/setup do you use to make your development workflow more productive?
What are unexplored spaces in the TypeScript eco-system you'd like to see people explore further?
What can we (as a community) do to encourage more and more developers to contribute to open source? I know many developers who want to contribute, but they don't know how to start. Besides most of their time is spent fixing bugs at their respective companies.
What are Microsoft's long term plans for Chakra?
