“How to write confidence-inspiring modules with breaking change detection”

By: Agata Surgot

July’s Node.js Dublin meetup welcomes Stephan Bönnemann, as he shares his thoughts on Node.js. The meetup will be hosted at Intercom’s Dublin office. You can register for the event here.

About this Node.js talk – “Dependency hell just froze over”


“There are over 150,000 packages on npm today, which makes it the biggest ecosystem out there. Using the right packages in your applications makes JavaScript a joy to develop. But if even immensely popular libraries fail to declare and communicate breaking changes, how can we trust over 50,000 strangers who developed all these

Currently we can’t. Let me show you how you can write confidence-inspiring modules with breaking change detection and fully automated and tested releases including changelogs. Machines do a way better job with this than buggy humans.”
