The Cloud Skills Show: JavaScript

Watch now on demand:

The Cloud Skills show is a livestream brought to you by Microsoft's Developer Relations team in the UK. Each week the team will bring guests from around the world to talk about technical skills. We cover the latest Microsoft Cloud news and announcements and introduce guests from communities across the tech ecosystem.

This episode is all about Javascript, and understanding some of the frameworks. In the show, we got an introduction to Node.js - a runtime which allows developers to use Javacript on the server-side and in the cloud; and we met 2 amazing people from the community – Debbie O’Brien who is active in the Vue.JS and Nuxt.js communities; and Ana Cidre, who is passionate about Angular and is organiser of ngSpain.

A huge thank you to today's guests on the show:
