Since its inception, Joyent has sought to build robust services for elastic compute and storage infrastructure. For much of our history, our runtime of choice for these upstack services was node.js — to the point that we were the steward of the project from 2010 until the formation of the Node Foundation in 2015. Today, however, while our engineering values remain centered around building robust services, we are no longer exclusive to node.js, finding ourselves looking beyond node.js to other platforms and communities. This talk will candidly describe where we’ve been, where we’re going, and how our relationship with node.js has changed — even as our values have remained the same.
