I think everyone here can agree that Node.js is awesome. Along with
the commonjs effort, it has intensified
of asynchronous I/O by default and strong support for easy networking
code has proven to be what lots of developers want in a platform. It's
exciting and the community is growing every day.
But with growth comes growing pains. Node has matured as a project. It
has a direction and a vision. This has happened organically and not
everyone is aware that things are different. And I think we need to start broadcasting
that direction and protecting that vision. I got motivated to write
this blog post to offer some suggestions that could help ease
some of the pain points of the community.
Most of the node community is centered around the mailing lists
been following the lists since the beginning. First as a lurker, then
a more and more frequent contributor. There is lots of activity and
some very smart people hang out there and respond frequently to
questions. What's even nicer is that Ryan
Dahl and other core members actually post
frequently to give good info on what's
happening with node. In short, it supports the growing node community
pretty well in my opinion. At least until recently.
