CHUCK:  Hey everybody, and welcome to Episode 67 of the JavaScript Jabber Show. This week on our panel, we have Joe Eames.

JOE:  Hey there.

CHUCK:  We also have Aaron Frost filling in for us.

AARON:  Hello.

CHUCK:  And we have a special guest and that is Toby Ho.

TOBY:  Hi everyone.

CHUCK:  I’m Charles Max Wood from DevChat.TV. Guys, why don’t we have you introduce yourselves really quick? Let’s start with you, Aaron.

AARON:  Okay. So, I’m a frontend developer at Domo.

JOE:  Open-source evangelist.

AARON:  Well, you can call me whatever you want.


AARON:  I’ve worked here for a few months. I love it. I’m writing a book on the next version of ECMAScript and a dad with three kids. So yeah, that’s me.

JOE:  Aaron’s too modest. He’s also a big-time conference speaker. He’s a regular presenter at local user groups. And like I said before, he’s one of our evangelists, so he was hired as a really high-level frontend engineer here at Domo to help us take our JavaScript and frontend work into the next level, really.

CHUCK:  Yeah, I also showed up late to a workshop that he was putting on using Node and Twilio and that was pretty cool.

JOE:  Yeah, that thing has been the bomb. Also, Aaron’s presentation at Fluent Conf with Dave Geddes was apparently the hit of the entire show, the best received. The organizer said he thought it was definitely one of the best presentations done at Fluent Conf.

AARON:  Yeah. They said it was the most entertaining and Simon said he wished we could cut it down in ten minutes and that they had made us keynote, because it was pretty fun. We had a lot of fun with it.

CHUCK:  Cool.

JOE:  Yeah, it’s up on YouTube. We’ll put links in the show notes. It’s really great.
