The Linux Foundation’s Attainment of JavaScript Community With the JS Foundation

Linux Foundation, a trade association who are intended to promote, advance and protect Linux development, has announced that JS Foundation is now Linux Foundation Project. The JS Foundation is used to provide best practices and policies to the server-side projects and Javascript applications. The Executive director of the JS Foundation, Kris Borchers said: “The Linux Foundation’s primary mission is to create the world’s largest shared technology investment,JavaScript is an extremely important programming language, which has seen numerous open-source projects arise around it. Many of these projects are essential to the infrastructure of the Internet, so the Linux Foundation feels it is important to ensure they have structured support and neutral governance to ensure their stability, which is why the JS Foundation is being formed.” Long-term sustainability and even more collaboration are expected from the mentorship program under the Linux Foundation. Some of the goals of the Foundation is to encourage the collaboration in the development community of Javascript, to host the infrastructure for the projects of JS Foundation, to continually drive adoption and continued development of Javascript solutions among others. Third party packages are planned to be supported by the Node.js now, since the JS Foundation will work with the Node.js Foundation, thereby achieving the goal that Node.js was never able to reach. The JS Foundation will work with standard bodies such as TC39, WHATWG, and W3C and will continue to be supported and community-driven. Angel Diaz, vice president of cloud technology and architecture for IBM said: “This is an exciting time for the JavaScript community.” Some of the Founding members of the foundation include Samsung, IBM, Ripple, StackPath and Sauce Labs among others.
