Node Foundation Membership Election

Mikeal Rogers recently posted Nominations for the 2016 Election for individual representation on the Node Foundation board.

I'm putting myself forward and answering the question "Why would you like to represent the individual membership of the foundation?"


I think that Node.js and the ecosystem around it plays a critical role in our current technology stack. This is going to become more important in the future.

I would like to be able to help shape the success of this platform. One way to do that is to understand what the membership wants and needs to get out of what we have today. More importantly what do they expect from the future. As part of the bridge between membership and the board I will be working to ensure that members' opinions are represented at the leadership level.


Leadership: In the past I've served as a director of engineering for a large IT company managing a team of 35+ managers and developers.

Technical: I have a few open source projects that I manage. I also contribute to open source projects I can improve through pull-requests. My day-to-day work is mostly writing JavaScript against the Node.js platform and system design and architecture.


I've intentionally kept this brief. I'll answer any questions. If you ask them as comments to this post then we can keep them in one place. Anyone else reading this will be informed.
