The JavaScript Fanboi Backstory

A couple of years ago I began writing a series of tech articles about web development. Each article was an “episode” in an ongoing story based on a handful of characters who worked for the fictional consulting firm I called Tangled Web Services. These were published under the Read Write Grok banner.

Half of those early stories were about the nitty-gritty of Read Write Serve, a Node.js HTTP/2 web server. The others covered CSS, HTML, and the BLUEPHRASE template language.

Near the end of 2019, I felt the urge to rant about the misuse of the word full stack. The article Full Stack Pronounced Dead, seems to have struck a chord with lots of people. To honor that impulse, I began publishing a new series of articles under the 2020 Stack banner. As we all know, 2020 didn’t turn out the way we expected, and some of my stories reflected that odd reality.

As 2020 was coming to a close, I took a step back to look at where web development was going. For me it meant taking my learning experience to a deeper level with JavaScript, both in the browser and on the server. How I Became a JavaScript Fanboi begins the journey.

I hope you’ll enjoy reading this new batch of tech articles as much as I enjoy writing them.
