    78: Norma Miller on Captioning Tech

    Every few months, I like to explore professions that are adjacent to programming.
    Today we're exploring captioning and its impact on our industry.

    Our guide for this industry is the fabulously giften Norma Miller of White Coat Captioning.
    I was captivated by her work at last year's React Rally and wanted to share with you what I learned from her.

    Her company does primarily technical events, which gives her an interesting vantage point into tech conference culture.
    We talk about typing in excess of 300 words a minute with 98% accuracy,
    The $6000 keyboards that make it little easier,
    And the open source that powers it.

    I think you love this chat, as we learn how captioners are making our technical events more multi-cultural, accessible, and inclusive.

    75: Sunil Pai on The Future of UI Frameworks

    React Core Team member Suil Pai in the chair today.

    React is a complicated project. It's open source but lead by facebook. That's a hard pill for many to swollow. But, for it, we get a framework that's battle-tested at facebook scale — every experimental API tested by billions of users.

    Today, Sunil and I dive into the future of React as a UI framework, how Concurrent mode marks a shift in focus from developer experience to user experience, and what it'll take to finally get better designer tooling for React.
