Tales of modernizing Trello's web stack
The web community is a fast moving community and over recent years, many great frameworks and tools have emerged. Technology changes made in the past are not always the right ones today. This applies to Trello’s web stack too. CoffeeScript and Backbone were great choices 7 years ago but there are better tools and frameworks available now, so the Trello team decided to update its stack to React, Typescript and GraphQL. But, how does one tackle this and how do you make sure you continue to innovate product-wise while modernizing its web stack? This is what we will discuss in this session.
