Charlie Vazac is a principal software engineer at Akamai and cofounder of SOASTA. He’s written a charting package in VML (gasp!), Web 2.0 apps before we said “Ajax” and “Comet,” single-page applications before they were called SPAs, browser analytics code in vanilla JavaScript that “works” in IE5.5, SPAs transpiled from ES2017, and C++ for a popular web browser. Charlie loves figuring out how things work, why they sometimes don’t, and how to make them better.

They also share tools to help you decide if a library’s risks and unseen costs are worth it. Read more.
