Spend A Full Day Immersed in JavaScript and TypeScript Monorepos with Mike North

Workshop Details

A monorepo is a git repository that contains more than one project. This powerful idea has taken the JavaScript world by storm, as it unlocks powerful new patterns around composition, encapsulation and ease of maintenance. In this workshop, we'll spend a day getting hands-on experience with a monorepo, and the best-in-class tools designed to keep workflows simple, even when your project gets complicated.
