At StrongLoop we recently announced StrongNode, a supportable distribution of Node.js. Now, some of you may be asking, “Who are these guys? Can they really stand behind Nodejs and deliver real production support?”
Well, at StrongLoop we mean business when it comes to the ability to support our customers deploying Node in production environments. Not only is the StrongLoop team comprised of seasoned enterprise architects and developers who know what it takes to run Node applications at scale, it’s also comprised of core contributors Bert Belder and myself (Ben Noordhuis). This means that at StrongLoop we not only understand what it takes to run Node in production, we also know what it takes create features, fix bugs and push patches.
One way to measure this depth of commitment is to look at the number of pushed lines of code and patches to Node.
Here’s a quick sample as of Sunday, March 10, 2013…
Number of patches to the project :
- Ben Noordhuis 615
