139: The Rise of io.js with Mikeal Rogers

January 30, 2015 at 5:00PM • 1 hour 2 minutes • Wiki Entry

Our guest this week is Mikeal Rogers, one of the leads behind io.js, a friendly fork of Node.js with an open governance model.

We discuss why the io.js fork exists, why they choose open governance, the roadmap and future of io.js, supporting ES6, burnout while working in open source, and the steps you can take to get involved with io.js.

52:02 - "My next task is to jump into the roadmap repo, and figure out more ways of pulling in feedback from the community, and figuring out what people want out of Node next, and that's the direction I expect it to go in." - Mikeal Rogers
