About this Episode

Wanna forget the back-end and only focus on the front? Too bad. In this episode, the React team sits down with Mike Alche, a developer whose full-stack approach reminds us why you need both ends to succeed. They discuss the power of tRPC, what led Mike to AdonisJS (and why it should be more popular), and Mike’s go-to tips for becoming a master at API testing.

“As develops, we love building products, but we need a place to put it. The back end’s not as trendy as the front end. That’s what ‘full stack’ means—everything together.”
- Mike Alche
