On Rome: why create something new, what's different than the current status quo, pros/cons of a mono-tool chain, on working privately, etc.

What is The Babel Podcast?

You probably use Babel. Do you ever wonder who made or works on the software you use, especially in open source? Or maybe it's in your dependencies and you don't even know.

Henry Zhu chats with other members of the team, TC39, and the JS community about the future of JavaScript, open source, and how it's all maintained. Join us in babbling about Babel!
