Adam Baldwin is the Director of Security at npm, inc. and so naturally we're talking about how to best handle security issues in our projects.
Kat Marchan of the npm team joins us to talk about npm tooling, including npx, Tink, and more.
Wes Bos talks about the course and sticker platform he's built, the technology behind it, and the reasons why he's built parts of it, and used off the shelf pre-built options for other parts. This is a great discussion for those faced with buying a system and customizing it for your needs vs building your own.

Educator & engineer Chris Fritz is on to discuss code reviews and how to help keep everyone in the loop on projects that grow.
