JavaScript Chat Agenda for September 26th

Please observe the noted two-hour delay in scheduled meeting time.

The past few weeks have been eventful for the WordPress JavaScript community: First with the decision that WordPress would not use Facebook’s React project in developing core features, then a subsequent announcement by Facebook of their intention to relicense React and other open source projects. The time between was marked by lively discussion of frameworks and interoperability, which will continue as the topic of our next JavaScript chat.

Topic: The role of a JavaScript framework in WordPress, particularly as it relates to:

  • The requirements of core features
  • Considerations for plugin and theme developers
  • Framework interoperability
  • Future sustainability

When: Tuesday, September 26, 2017 at 15:00 UTC (Note: This is two hours later than the regularly scheduled time, in an effort to maximally accommodate all interested groups)

Where: #core-js Slack channel (Register)

For additional context, you may consider reviewing chat summaries from earlier this year relating to framework use in core (May 30th, May 23rd) or a recent GitHub issue which has garnered significant attention and discussion.

If you have questions related to the above agenda, please leave a comment. See you there!
