Last Week in Node.js Working Groups - July 31st
Last week there was an enormous amount of activity in the various WGs and projects across the Node.js organization. If the past few weeks are any indicator, this amount of activity has become the norm rather than the exception. Last week we saw activity from across the org - updates from the Installer, Website, Docker, Security, and more.
News from the Working Groups
