In this article, we’ll go over some of the popular approaches to graphics-intensive projects on the web, compare their advantages, and look at some sample code. By the end, you’ll be able to confidently make your choice, and get drawing!
How we approached and accomplished the integration between SO for Teams and MS Teams. This is a technical blog for folks who are interested in the process of how we got these two codebases to play nice with one another.
