Front-end hosts: Cabbage, Otto, Franky
A new episode of the podcast is here! In this episode, we are trying out a new series called Sharp Review. The content of this episode is Copilot Chat && Copilot Labs.
The core of the Sharp Review series revolves around the technical aspects of front-end development for front-end programmers. This includes but is not limited to evaluating and discussing technical aspects such as updates to front-end technologies, new frameworks and libraries, and development (debugging tools, etc.) that are relevant to front-end programmers. The discussion is focused solely on the technology itself and does not involve individuals or companies. Discussions are usually based on topics that accumulate 2-3 or have a duration of 15-30 minutes.
"Web Worker" is an audio podcast program where a few front-end programmers chat. The program will chat about the field of programmers, workplace, information, technology selection... Anything related to web development can be discussed. Because the hosts are front-end programmers, the perspective will be focused on the front-end.
