JS Party

Exciting! Exciting? !Exciting

Nick is excited to explain CVA to us like we’re five (then again like we’re 41).
KBall is excited to share details of his new stack (for the new app he’s building).
Jerod is excited to share some recent news items (but he’s the only one).

And finally, we’re all excited to debate TypeScript vs JSDoc comments!
