Last Week in Node.js Working Groups - December 11th, 2017

The past week of activity in the Node.js project has been outstandingly strong - even with the holiday season fast approaching, the project’s contributors are outputting an immense amount of effort solving various issues, shipping new features, and discussing the future.

Check out some of the most interesting discussions and updates from last week:
