How I Got Into Node.js Tierney Cyren by Node.js Foundation
The co-chair of the Node.js Community Committee, Tierney Cyren, recently sat down with the Node.js Foundation for an interview on how he got started with Node.js. Here are some of the highlight quotes:
"I started using Node.js at a bit of a turbulent time — just after the io.js fork happened. Mikeal Rogers had written a post on Medium about how io.js was growing with amazing speed, and was effectively an alert for those who were interested in what was happening."
"Trying io.js, seeing that progress was being made rapidly, and the community was banding together to build something together was the trigger for me. Education and learning is something I really care about, and so I saw that point as a moment where I could come in and help make a difference. I finally understood what everyone was talking about when they discussed the ease of use in Node.js."
