Node.js Foundation, JS Foundation Contemplate Merger

  • By Developer.com Staff

The Node.js Foundation and JS Foundation have announced their intentions to merge. The Node.js Foundation, launched in 2015, oversees the Node.js project, which enables server-side JavaScript. The JS Foundation launched in 2016 and focuses on the JavaScript ecosystem.

“Joining forces will not change the technical independence or autonomy for Node.js or any of the 28 JS Foundation projects such as Appium, ESLint, or jQuery,” the two organizations stated in the announcement. “JavaScript is a versatile programming language that has expanded far beyond its role as a backbone of the web, entering new environments such as IoT, native apps, DevOps, and protocols. As the ecosystem continues to evolve — moving from browsers to servers, desktop applications to embedded devices — increased collaboration in the JavaScript ecosystem is more important than ever to sustain continued and healthy growth.”

Members of the JavaScript community are invited to comment on the proposed merger online or in person at upcoming events.
