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

I hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday, Winter Break and New Year with your friends and family. I had a very family-focused holiday and spent most of the time offline. It was grand and I feel recharged and ready to blow 2018 wide open. Let’s do this!

Always Forward with dshaw
One of my favorite aspects of podcasting is that it captures tone in a way that is impossible to convey with text. There are a ton of important issues we need to work through in 2018. Many of them are complex and/or delicate. We are going to need tone and context to align on these issues.
Starting January 9th, 2018, on the 2nd Tuesday of the month at 10am PT, I will record Always Forward with dshaw. I want to add video to the mix to help introduce the global Node.js community to some important faces in the ever evolving Node.js Ecosystem.
Always Forward with dshaw: Going to Market with Node.js - Crowdcast Always Forward with dshaw: Going to Market with Node.js - Crowdcast
In this show, I will be joined by David Moore, Founder/CEO of FuzzStati0n, and Joe Doyle, Head of Engineering at Woebot. We will discuss our experiences Going to Market with Node.js. We will explore the unique opportunities and challenges the Node.js Ecosystem presents. We will dive into why multi-platform product companies are choosing to launch in the Node.js Ecosystem first.
If you are building products with Node.js or are selling to Node.js users, you won’t want to miss this show. Bring your questions and experiences. You will have the opportunity to join us live on screen.
If you’d like to propose a topic or suggest someone who should be on the show, drop a note to alwaysforward@dshaw.com and let’s discuss.
Strategic Initiatives
Node.js End User Feedback
Node.js End User Feedback
The @nodejs Benchmarking WG wants your feedback. With the help of the Node.js End User Feedback team and the Node.js Foundation, we’ve created a survey. Your input will help prioritize Node.js benchmarking efforts in 2018.
2017 Benchmarking Working Group Survey
Additional context can be found on the User Feedback GitHub repo.
The User Feedback team meets every two weeks on Fridays at 9am PT. Everyone is welcome. On Friday, February 9th, we will hold the first public feedback session which will focus on Enterprise user feedback.
CNCF (Cloud Native Computing Foundation)
Now that the Node.js End User Feedback initiative is fully setup and on a regular cadence, I am ready to head up a new initiative. In an effort to learn how we can improve governance and process for Node.js, I have begun to work with some folks in the CNCF to explore best practices for defining and distributing system policies in a Cloud Native environment. I expect the initial proposal to finalize this month.
News
January will be a travel heavy month for me. Mid-month I will be heading to Ireland to meet with Cian O'Maidin and the team at nearForm. From there I head to Toronto, then L.A before returning to San Francisco at the end of the month. I have a couple meeting slots available during the L.A. leg. Get in touch if you want to meet while I’m in Los Angeles from January 24-26.
