I wasn't ready to become the maintainer of Babel

I wasn't ready to become the maintainer of Babel. After all, I had never published my own npm package or explored much of the codebase. But slowly (sometimes really slowly) I got used to it. I recall Kent C. Dodds saying that if you want to be a maintainer, just act like and do the things a maintainers does. Sounds easy enough 🤣. I particularly enjoyed the linked post on imposter syndrome from Rachel Smith.



Linked Lists — a BaseCS video series

Vaideji Joshi has teamed up with our friends at to produce an awesome educational video series to accompany her awesome CodeNewbie podcast of the same name. The first series is on Linked Lists. Here's the pitch: You might have heard about linked lists, or you might think that you're supposed to know about them. Maybe you do know a little bit about them, but don't know why you should care or why they matter. Either way, I want to tell you about why they're so cool. More like this, please! 🙏
