๐Ÿ’› CircleCI (Show sponsor)
Robust and sleek Docker-based Continuous Integration as a service. I used CircleCI prior to them becoming a sponsor and I love that their free tier is powerful enough for small personal projects, even if they are private. Use this link when you sign up to let them know you came from here:

Wonder how MPJ evaluates JavaScript inline his editor. Quokka is the answer - use this link when you buy to let them know you came from here:

๐Ÿ’› Wallaby (Show sponsor)
Wallaby.js runs your JavaScript tests immediately as you type and displays execution results in your code editor. It is insanely fast, because it only executes tests affected by your code changes and runs tests in parallel. Let them know you came from us by using this link:

Since 2015, Fun Fun Function (FFF) is one of the longest running weekly YouTube shows on programming ๐Ÿ… thanks to its consistency and quality reaching 200,000+ developers.

๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™‚๏ธ The Failing Together concept is what makes FFF unique. Most coding content out there focus on step-by-step tutorials. We think tutorials are too far removed from what everyday development is like. Instead, FFF has created a completely new learning environment where we grow from failure, by solving problems while intensively interacting with a live audience.

Tutorials try to solve a problem. Failing Together makes you grow as a developer and coworker.

๐Ÿ“น Each show is recorded live on Twitch in a 2-hour livestream on Mondays. The host, assisted by the audience, is tasked to complete a programming challenge by an expert guest. Like in the real world, we often fail, and learn from it. This, of course, reflects what the audience identifies with, and is one of the most praised aspects of the show.

โฏ On Fridays, an edited version of the show is adapted for and published on YouTube.

Content Topics revolve around: JavaScript, Functional Programming, Software Architecture, Quality Processes, Developer Career and Health, Team Collaboration, Software Development, Project Management
