Linux Foundation Launches JavaScript Foundation

The Linux Foundation has announced that it is forming a new organization called the JavaScript Foundation. The group will absorb the jQuery Foundation and provide oversight of 22 other JavaScript-related projects including the Appium testing automation framework, the Dojo Toolkit, the ESLint utility, the JerryScript engine, the Mocha testing framework and the Node-RED Internet of Things project.

“The Linux Foundation’s primary mission is to create the world’s largest shared technology investment,” said Kris Borchers, executive director of the JS Foundation. “JavaScript is an extremely important programming language, which has seen numerous open-source projects arise around it. Many of these projects are essential to the infrastructure of the Internet, so the Linux Foundation feels it is important to ensure they have structured support and neutral governance to ensure their stability, which is why the JS Foundation is being formed.”

The JavaScript Foundation also plans to work closely with the Node.js Foundation.
