WPTavern: WPWeekly Episode 275 – The JavaScript Framework Rabbit Hole

WPTavern: WPWeekly Episode 275 – The JavaScript Framework Rabbit Hole

In this episode, John James Jacoby and I celebrate WordPress’ 14th birthday. We discuss the removal of HHVM from WordPress’ testing infrastructure and how it was likely the reason PHP 7 gained so many performance improvements.

For a majority of the show, Jacoby and I spoke in-depth on which JavaScript framework WordPress core should choose. We discuss what’s at stake, who might be impacted, and why the discussion and eventual decision is important for WordPress’ future. To round out the show, we share our picks of the week and let you know about upcoming WordCamps.

Stories Discussed:
