Michael Ficarra has been working on a rewrite of the CoffeeScript compiler. He’s gone through an interesting path to get support for his work by running a successful Kickstarter campaign and partnering with Groupon to sponsor his work.
Word of warning before you press play. The acoustics where we recorded were awful and there is some harshness in the audio.
Mike loves technical community. To learn more about the people who make up the global technical community he started interviewing people who run and support user-groups and publishing them on UGtastic.com. User-groups? Fantastic! Now UGtastic contains nearly 100 interviews with speakers, user-group facilitators, tech conference organizers, authors, F/OSS contributors and other community influencers. Maybe you'll be interviewed next!
