Another industry organization focused on Node.js has formed, albeit one with sparse membership at this juncture.
Absent from the coalition, at least right now, are important players like Joyent, which has shepherded development of the platform. But all are welcome to participate by attending an event, sponsoring, speaking or sharing content, McCann said. "As with any network, the more members that are in it, the stronger the network effect."
McCann said as of 2015, it was "almost impossible to find a member of the Fortune 500 who is not using Node in some capacity." PayPal, Intuit, and NodeSource have all had success using Node.js, and the trend is only accelerating with many other companies reaping the benefits, he said.
