Modulus + Progress Join Node.js Foundation

Modulus + Progress Join Node.js Foundation

Over the past year, there have been many conversations about the future of Node.js and io.js, the recent fork. The conversations were critical to promoting the longevity and productivity of the project as a whole. Without this movement we wouldn't be where we are today as a community. This is just one of the reasons I’m extremely proud to announce that Progress Software has joined the Node.js Foundation.

The Node.js Foundation will help truly build a long term solution for the governance and guidance of the project. The new structure introduces a Technical Steering Committee (TSC) to guide the technical direction which will help make mutually beneficial decisions quickly. The formation of this foundation is made possible by the backing of some the largest tech companies in the world - including trusted names like Microsoft, PayPal, Intel, and IBM.

The Node.js landscape continues to move at an extremely rapid pace and we at Modulus are absolutely dedicated to helping deliver the best tools and resources possible. If we can help in any way please feel free to reach out to us at help@modulus.io.

Finally, I'd like to give special thanks to the countless partners, collaborators and friends for their hard work to get us to this point - including the many core contributors, Joyent, and more.
