DevNews #103 – Hello Chakra, Sayonara IE


Show Notes

  • Microsoft opens all of your chakras by open-sourcing the core of MS Edge Javascript renderer, Chakra.
  • Tin foil hat portion of our show: Remote Code execution on Trend Micro. This is currently plugged, but still interesting. We also learn that when Jeff visits the dark corners of the internet… for recipes… he always does safely it on a VM.
  • Pour out a 40 for all your dead web apps. IE 8, 9, 10 are now officially EOL, and sing with a choir invisible. Rejoice!
  • Despite being slightly behind in the Android game, Google now uses OpenJDK on Android.
  • We shout out a happy birthday to our single fan. Happy birthday, JC from AC…


  • Registration is now open for ETE 2016. Early bird tickets are available until they’re not… So save some money and register now!
  • Also, stay tuned for ETE speaker TechCast podcasts – we’ll be speaking to folks like Ari Lerner, Steve Klabnik, Brent Vatne, and more. You can listen to them as they appear on our Chariot TechCast page.
