Video: Node.js Members Discuss the Future of the Foundation and the Tech
The technology has grown so far since its inception in 2009. It has become the glue that ties and drives the API economy — a way to simplify web development — and the driver behind massively scalable applications.
Whether an enterprise is looking to transition to mobile or take a bite out of the growing data and device-focused Internet-of-Things opportunity, Node.js shows up for its ability to scale and perform. Startups too are continually looking to integrate Node.js as a part of their infrastructure. Node.js use cases are everywhere.
- When PayPal transformed to mobile-based transactions, Node.js was a major part of the makeover as it allowed the company to secure web pages more rapidly and simplify web development.
- Uber uses Node.js to process information quickly and without disruption.
The Node.js Foundation was created to help bring stability and maximum opportunity to the Node.js ecosystem in its next growth phase for both the community and enterprise users. In this video, several Node.js Foundation members from PayPal, Joyent, npm and StrongLoop (an IBM company) discuss the importance of the organization, and what’s next for the Foundation and the technology.
