Executive Leadership and Strategy for @nodejs. Always bet on #nodejs! ✨

As we wrap up 2017 and start December, I’m heading to CloudNativeCon and KubeCon in Austin, TX. Node.js, the CloudNative Runtime, has had a great year and we are poised to grow even more in 2018. The Node.js project is focusing on improving diagnostics tooling, engaging the end users and ensuring all 8.5 million Node.js users world-wide have the best, most productive experience possible with the platform.

Strategic Initiatives
Node.js End User Feedback (NEUF) Initiative
Following Node.js Interactive 2017, I kicked off several strategic initiatives around the Node.js project to gain first-hand context to be better able to help improve our systems and processes. I volunteered to help iterate on project Governance under the auspices of the Node.js Technical Steering Committee (TSC). That’s been slow going so far. Additionally, I kicked off an ambitious initiative un the the Node.js Community Committee (CommComm) around End User Feedback. That has made steady progress and we just passed a major milestone: our first official team meeting.

I have one more strategic initiative brewing and it’s actually under the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF). More on that soon.
News
It with great pleasure that I can announce that I am working with Cian O'Maiden and the rest of the team at nearForm as Strategic Advisor. nearForm was founded about the same time as The Node Firm back in 2011 in the early days of commercializing Node.js. Since then, Cian and his team have continued to invest in Node.js and the community. Today, nearForm delivers end-to-end, full-stack services leveraging open source technologies. They are a perfect partner in my mission to grow Node.js and better align Node.js with the Web Platform.
