Podcast 402: Teaching developers about the most lightweight web “framework” around, VanillaJS

How teaching beginners can highlight the concepts that you've internalized too much.

We chat with Chris Ferdinandi, affectionately known as the VanillaJS guy. He has a newsletter, podcast, eBooks, and courses all trying to teach people to use more resilient and simple browser-native JavaScript free of the complications that come from elaborate frameworks. 

Episode notes

What exactly is VanillaJS? Tongue-in-cheek, it’s the most lightweight JavaScript framework out there and used by pretty much every website on the internet. Seriously though, it’s just JavaScript…without a framework. 

If you’re interested in reading and learning more about JavaScript, Chris has a bevy of courses and eBooks over at vanillajsguides.com

Like Chris’s ideas so much you want to subscribe to his newsletter? Right over this way!

Chris has kindly put together a collection of resources for listeners like you at gomakethings.com/overflow
