On today’s episode of The New Stack Makers, TNS Founder Alex Williams and co-host Ziff Davis Enterprise Senior Editor Darryl Taft spoke with with NFL Software Engineer James Hush during last year’s Node.js Interactive conference to learn more about how the NFL’s open-source React platform Wildcat is aiding not only the sports industry in developing, deploying, and concepting applications, but how React and Node.js have shaped the company since it on-boarded React in 2014.
