Style Guides at Airbnb

I have been working programming professional for about 3 years now and only been working in JavaScript for half that time. So when I made the jump into the JavaScript ecosystem I needed help keepting my syntax consistent, which is how I stumbled upon the Airbnb Style Guide.

// excerpt from the Airbnb style guide.

// bad
const items = new Array();

// good
const items = [];

I chat with Harrison about what makes for a good style guide and why they are so important for growing engineering teams.

After the recording of this episode we created a eslint-config-plugin that uses Airbnb’s style guide as the backbone. Check it out on GitHub and let us know what you think.
