JavaScript Air

039 jsAir - Node.js and Community with James M Snell, Gregor Martynus, Myles Borins, and Tracy Hinds

September 7, 2016

A huge part of open source is the community that is formed around it. This is one of the best parts of open source. It is also a challenge to manage, especially with big projects like Node.js. We'll be chatting with some community builders and code contributors to learn how Node.js fosters and grows its community.
