How I Got Into #Node: Uttam Pawar by Node.js Foundation

Uttam Pawar, who is a frequent contributor to Node.js and its community, didn't always start out that way. After a frustrating experience at a startup, Uttam decided to take action and learn more about web/mobile development and learned more about Java, Flex, Rails(RoR) and eventually Node.js. Here are some of the highlights from his interview with Node.js Foundation.

"I’ve fallen in love with the open source software philosophy and started contributing to various projects. So far I’ve contributed to Linux kernel, GCC, the Open64 compiler toolchain, and Node.js."

"For most people who know JavaScript, they can start using Node.js very easily, but for me it was a little different. The use of Node.js made it easier to understand and write code in JavaScript. This reduced my learning curve quite a bit. Since then I started using the Node.js platform for work and pleasure."

"Currently I attend regular bench marking meetings. Monitor any performance issues reported on the Node.js Issues and look for opportunities to fix them. At Intel we have a team working to improve performance of the Node.js runtime (libuv, V8, http_parser, etc.) and highly used npm modules."
