Scott Hammond, the CEO of Joyent, joined the show to talk about the history of Node, Joyent’s interest in Node, how they’ve handled the stewardship of Node over the years, their support of io.js joining Node Foundation, the convergence of the code bases for a stronger more inclusive Node community.
At the tail end of the show, just when you think it’s over, keep listening because we got Scott back on the call to discuss the news that came this week of the io.js TC voting to join Node Foundation.
