CanJS’s mission is to make sure the code you write today is valuable years in the future. This starts by ensuring CanJS is thriving despite constantly changing techniques and technology. We’ve learned a lot managing CanJS’s 10 year old codebase. This is the first of many (possibly 7!) articles highlighting techniques the DoneJS core team uses to keep CanJS stable and innovative within a constantly changing technology landscape. While CanJS’s code base is used as an example, these techniques apply to any code base.
