TypeScript, Open Source e il Team Digitale: la storia di

Parlerò di quello che probabilmente è uno dei più corposi e complessi progetti open source scritti interamente in TypeScript (con più di 50k righe di codice) - un progetto interamente finanziato dal Governo Italiano e il cui obiettivo è rendere la vita dei cittadini italiani più semplice.

Ad inizio 2017 inizia la storia del progetto, il progetto open source per sviluppare l’app dei servizi pubblici - in due anni abbiamo scritto più di 50 mila righe di codice TypeScript tra app mobile (React Native) e backend (NodeJS e Azure Functions). Racconterò la storia del progetto, le scelte tecniche, le librerie e i tool open source che abbiamo creato e come TypeScript ci abbia aiutato a scrivere codice e più sicuro e solido.

Migrating large codebase to TypeScript

As a growing startup with large JavaScript codebase we’ve made the transition to TypeScript and survived to tell the tale! It wasn’t easy to make the decision but only half year later we feel like the investment already paid off. We looked back and identified many Dos and Don’ts to talk about.

It’s 2019 and TypeScript is the obvious choice for every new project. But if your codebase is JavaScript how do you make the switch? Facing a quarter million lines of code – a messy mixture of untyped or poorly flow-typed JavaScript – our team of 15 at productboard absolutely knew we wanted to make the switch, but the barrier to entry looked very high. A half a year later, 85% of the codebase is strictly typed TypeScript and our confidence over the code has increased tremendously. In this talk I’d like to share our experience and answer the following questions:
  • How we convinced management it was worth the effort?
  • How we approached the migration and how we phase it?
  • How we learned to best collaborate as a team?
  • What we’d do differently next time?
  • We learned a lot along the way and are eager to share it with all the other teams, because we believe everyone deserves TypeScript!

Great coffee with a conscience

Support sustainable farming while enjoying a cup

Why Kaldi

Kaldi is the coffee store for everyone who believes that great coffee shouldn't just taste good, it should do good too. We source all of our beans directly from small scale sustainable farmers and make sure part of the profits are reinvested in their communities.

Great coffee with a conscience

Kaldi is the ultimate spot for coffee lovers who want to learn about their java’s origin and support the farmers that grew it. We take coffee production, roasting and brewing seriously and we’re glad to pass that knowledge to anyone.

We sell green and roasted coffee beans that are sourced directly from independent farmers and farm cooperatives. We’re proud to offer a variety of coffee beans grown with great care for the environment and local communities. Check our post or contact us directly for current availability.

We offer a small, but carefully curated selection of brewing gear and tools for every taste and experience level. No matter if you roast your own beans or just bought your first french press, you’ll find a gadget to fall in love with in our shop.

Love a great cup of coffee, but never knew how to make one? Bought a fancy new Chemex but have no clue how to use it? Don't worry, we’re here to help. You can schedule a custom 1-on-1 consultation with our baristas to learn anything you want to know about coffee roasting and brewing. Email us or call the store for details.

We believe that good coffee has the power to bring people together. That’s why we decided to turn a corner of our shop into a cozy meeting space where you can hang out with fellow coffee lovers and learn about coffee making techniques. All of the artwork on display there is for sale. The full price you pay goes to the artist.

This week we’ll take a look at all the steps required to make astonishing coffee with a Chemex at home. The Chemex Coffeemaker is a manual, pour-over style glass-container coffeemaker that Peter Schlumbohm invented in 1941, and which continues to be manufactured by the Chemex Corporation in Chicopee, Massachusetts. In 1958, designers at the Illinois Institute of Technology said that the Chemex…

The SCAA updated the wheel to reflect the finer nuances needed to describe flavors more precisely. The new descriptions are more detailed and hence allow cuppers to distinguish between more flavors. While this is going to be a big change for professional coffee tasters, it means a lot to you as a consumer as well. We’ll explain how the wheel came to be, how pros use it and what the flavors…
