Last year in October, the Node.js and JS Foundations announced their intent to create a joint organization. After six months of analyzing community feedback, deliberation, and collaboration, the two foundations finally merged into the OpenJS Foundation on Tuesday.
The OpenJS Foundation is backed by 30 corporate and end-user members including Google, Microsoft, IBM, PayPal, and GoDaddy. It currently hosts a wide range of projects including Appium, Dojo, jQuery, Node.js, webpack, and many more.
Goals of the OpenJS Foundation
Providing resources and accelerating the development
Combined governance structure
Improved membership experience
#OpenJSFoundation – a monumental move to help advance the entire JS OSS ecosystem. Not only the industry partners but HUGE THANK YOU to the COMMUNITY, which came together amazingly to work through and help make this happen! Excited about what future holds @Nodejs 🤝 @the_jsf https://t.co/0Y06XmJmRG
