For more than two years I've used Frontend First to talk about whatever's going on in my day-to-day life doing frontend development, along with my co-host Ryan Toronto.

While we originally focused on Ember.js, these days we talk about whatever's happening in the world of JavaScript UI development.

Check out some of my favorite episodes below.

Adam Wathan on Tailwind CSS

I loved this conversation because Adam does a great job breaking down the utility-first CSS approach to its first principles.

This is a good representitive episode of the show since it's just Ryan and me talking. It's a bit of a special episode though, because in this one we do a deep dive of the wonderful essay "APIs are about Policy" by Steven Wittens.
