Keynote Address - 9:00 AM
Text highlighted as so is my personal opinion. Everything else are my notes of what the speaker said (or my best attempt to type what the speaker said).
Enterprise is not at the edge of the Node community, it is in the center. Open source is flourishing in the enterprise. Importantly, enterprise businesses are paying for the community by contributing code, projects/products, and allowing employees to contribute.
For a business, the idea of an SLA and paying someone is really important because not every company can sustain a deep internal knowledge of every product. So, it’s desirable for these companies to pay another business to maintain these deep knowledge (ex. of Node) and to sell support contracts.
Private NPM is very important for security. Enterprises are not comfortable just downloading code from the internet and using it run million dollar and billion dollar businesses.
Let’s build an ecosystem where having a private npm is natural.
I think Eran was driving at the idea that the use of both public npm repos and private npm repos within the same project should be baked into npm.
There are half a dozen private npm projects that are ongoing.
Enterprises that have the budget should fund a core node contributor.
This would be similar to how IBM, RedHat, etc. helped fund early Linux development.
