#58: Deno 1.33, Deno KV, and more
At Node Congress, Ryan Dahl gave a keynote that teased Deno 2.0 and Deno KV, both which was met with excitement. We then launched Deno KV on Deploy in closed beta (join the waitlist today). Luca and Heyang also joined me (Andy) this past week for a livestream where we answered questions about and demo'd Deno KV on Deploy by building "Deno Paste".
