This week we chat about Deno 1.0, a new runtime for executing JavaScript and TypeScript outside of the web browser. Plus, Stack wins a Webby for best Community website, and we debate the ins and outs of copying other people’s code the “right way.”

Episode Notes

The star-studded ceremony for the 2020 Webby’s can be watched on repeat here (not that we’re doing that…)

Ryan’s piece on how coders beg, borrow, and steal can be found here.
