Welcomes JS Foundation and introduces Mentorship Program
The JS Foundation is a member supported organization; founding members include Bocoup, IBM, Ripple, Samsung, Sauce Labs, Sense Tecnic Systems, SitePen, StackPath, University of Westminster and WebsiteSetup.
More about initial projects within the JS Foundation Mentorship Program:
- Appium, contributed by Sauce Labs, is an open source Node.js server used for automating native, mobile web, and hybrid applications on iOS and Android platforms as well as the recent addition of the Universal Windows Platform. Appium expands JS Foundation’s current test framework and tooling offerings into the device automation space.
- Interledger.js, contributed by Ripple, enables instant payments and micropayments in any currency, across many payment networks using the Interledger Protocol (ILP). By supporting this project, the JS Foundation is encouraging organizations and their application developers to consider new ways to think about payments on the web and look for ways to simplify and standardize those processes.

As part of this launch, we are pleased to be contributing Node-RED to the JS Foundation. Node-RED (see: http://nodered.org/) is a rapidly growing environment that has reached widespread adoption among the IoT community by establishing a broad ecosystem of flows and nodes that are shared by the community at large. With community contribution, Node-RED will set a course to innovate and iterate IoT applications rapidly and with greater agility right in the cloud.”
As with all open source projects, technical contributions to the JS Foundation projects are welcome at any time, from anyone. To learn more about the JS Foundation, its members and its projects, please visit: https://js.foundation.
Today the JS Foundation will host a keynote at OSCON in London at 9:50 am local time. The video recording will be made available following the keynote. For more information, please visit: http://conferences.oreilly.com/oscon/open-source-eu.
