This talk is about GNOME's JavaScript platform. We'll talk about the latest developments in using TypeScript to write GNOME apps, new JavaScript language and GNOME platform features that you can use in your code, gjs.guide and community-led documentation updates, the power at your fingertips with a code sandbox like Workbench, and celebrate some of the past year's contributions. If you write GNOME apps or Shell extensions in JavaScript or TypeScript, don't miss it!
