The Future of Node.js - All Things Open 2016

Node.js is one of the fastest growing programming platforms in the world. Powered by the success of the JavaScript language, Node.js has already become the dominant technology at enterprise companies like Paypal, Netflix, and Walmart. With the founding of the Node Foundation last year, Node.js has finally become a mature and robust platform for developing web applications. But as Node.js matures and undergoes changes, its future becomes even more uncertain. Recent changes in the community, technology, and corporate involvement point to a bright, if different, future for Node.js.

This talk will use recent and current events to paint a picture of the future of the Node.js platform. In addition to introducing upcoming technology features in Node.js, Ryan will present predictions for what the ecosystem will look like in the future and what you can expect.
