A Sneak Peek into the JS Interactive Schedule

Haven’t heard of JS Interactive yet? JS Interactive is an expansion of Node.js Interactive bringing the wider Node.js and JavaScript communities together to collaborate face-to-face, network, and learn how to better their skills with JavaScript in serverless, IoT, backend, frontend, and more. The conference takes place from October 10–12 in Vancouver, Canada. We shared a preview of the programming. The full schedule will be announced on June 7!


Third Annual Node.js User Survey Data Now Available

We're excited to announce the results from our Node.js 2018 User Survey. The survey’s primary objective is to profile Node.js user patterns and trends as well as identify potential areas of improvement and growth. More than 1,600 people spanning more than 100+ countries and speaking at least 60 different languages participated in the survey, which was distributed in English and Chinese.


Node.js Spotlight of the Month: Monica Ene-Pietrosanu, Director of Software Engineering at Intel

In this video series, Node.js community members and Node.js Foundation members share what excites them about Node.js, why they participate in the community and the Node.js Foundation, and the future potential of this universal platform. In this episode, Monica Ene-Pietrosanu, Director of Software Engineering at Intel, provides an overview of how the performance of Node.js is changing as it moves to use cases within the cloud and data center.


The Node.js Project Introduces Latest Release Line: Node.js 10.x

In April, the Node.js Project released Node.js 10.0.0. In October 2018, the Node.js 10.x release line will become the new active Long Term Support release line. Long Term Support release lines focus on stability, extended support and provide a reliable platform for applications of any scale. Most Node.js users and companies are on Long Term Support lines. 


Understanding How Node.js Release Lines Work

Since the formation of the Node.js Foundation, the Node.js project has aimed at moving forward while at the same time providing a stable platform for those that are building businesses and need a reliable foundation. The key way that this has manifested itself is through the Node.js release process, including the Current release line and the LTS release lines. In this article Tierney Cyren, explains the context around the Node.js release lines and why, when, and how they should be used.


Say Hello to Node.js 10.0.0

Node.js 10 focuses primarily on incremental improvements made throughout the whole platform. There are very few areas of the codebase that have not been touched by over 750 commits included in the release. There’s plenty in the release to get excited about, but here’s an overview of the highlights from James Snell.


Data-Forge: Open Source Node.js Data Transformation, Analysis and Visualization Toolkit.

Data-Forge is an open-source JavaScript data-wrangling and analysis toolkit, built by Ashley Davis, that was inspired by Pandas and LINQ. It can be used for all manners of data-wrangling tasks such as working on SQL and MongoDB databases, creating reports, backtesting and algo stock trading. Or use it in web apps, server backends, (JavaScript-based) mobile apps. Check out this new tool for slicing and dicing data in Node.js.


A Blast from the Past: Node.js

In this post, Safia Abdalla travels to the past and checks out the code associated with the first commit to the Node.js code base. The initial public commit made to the Node code base was committed on February 16th, 2009. Code and documentation in an initial commit is typically aimed at allowing individuals to immediately start using and contributing to the project. Check out what was in the first Node.js commit.


Node.js 8.10 Runtime Now Available in AWS Lambda
