Today the Node.js project took a historic step forward. An advisory board is being formed for Node.js with the intention of guiding the project toward a community-based open governance model.
At StrongLoop we are of course participating on this advisory board and we’re excited to serve alongside community members such as IBM, Netflix, npm, Paypal, Walmart and Yahoo.
We believe evolving the current governance model to a truly open one supported by an independent foundation will help mainstream innovations in Node sooner, give developers and organizations the confidence to continue to invest development resources in Node, and launch a virtuous cycle accelerating the popularity and growth of Node even further.
The future for Node is incredibly bright and are excited to collaborate with the other members of the advisory board to drive its continued success.
