Announcing NodeSource Insiders
As of our August 15th release, we’ve expanded availability of our products to include both a free-forever developer tier and a tier for smaller teams. While we’ve always been proud of our products, this change marks a significant departure for us; it’s the first time in company history that free and startup-friendly pricing has been publicly available.
We have some exciting enhancements in the works (expect more news in the next few months!), but with a more diverse user base comes the need for more diverse feedback.
In the past, we’ve reached out to our customers, many of whom work in large- or enterprise-size organizations to better understand how we could improve our tools. Since we’ve recently expanded availability to both individual developers and small teams, we’re interested in feedback from individuals from those groups as well.
Beyond our existing tools, we’re doubling down with our focus on solving hard problems to make your life easier, and you know best what's missing. We know production deployments, but you know the pain points throughout development.
In order to connect with y’all and ensure that the platform we’re building is truly useful to developers, no matter where they live or who they work for, there we’ve decided to launch a new program: NodeSource Insiders.
Introducing NodeSource Insiders
Today I’m excited to announce the creation of the NodeSource Insiders program. NodeSource Insiders get a few key benefits, including:
- Early access to new and experimental features in both N|Solid and Certified Modules
- Free access to our Professional tier plan
- Dedicated Developer Relations contact for general and product support questions
- Access to NodeSource Office Hours, a once-monthly live support session hosted by our experienced Solutions Architects.
How You Can Become a NodeSource Insider
If the NodeSource Insiders program sounds interesting to you, we’d love to know. To participate in the first batch of NodeSource Insiders, you can fill out this Google Form to apply. We’ll be reaching out in about a week to applicants, and are going to be looking for about 10-20 individuals with distinctly different technical skill sets, use cases, and backgrounds.
Node.js isn’t just a single community, and we want to be sure to get as diverse a set of Insiders as possible. We’ve always welcomed suggestions, comments, and ideas from the larger technical community, so Insider or not, we truly value your feedback! If you’d like to reach out to us, there are a couple ways you can do so:
