Node.js Roadmap: What's Next for the JavaScript Runtime by Paul Krill

Node.js is expected to add massive improvements in a wide range of areas between now and 2020. Node.js version 10 is set to debut in April of this year, but there are additional capabilities that are being planned out for future versions. Some of those additional capabilities include:

  • Better diagnostic capabilities 
  • Faster release schedule for the Google V8 JavaScript Engine 
  • A browser-compatible ECMAScript that coexist with the existing Node.js module
  • Continued progress on security 
  • Use of JavaScript promises (See how you can use Profound.js can help speed up your apps using Promises)
  • Support for more build/automation infrastructure

Advice for the IBM i Application Fence Sitters by Dan Burger

Many executives do not recognize the full potential of IT. Having an IBM i system that is current and up to date with modern applications is vital for the future of your business, but many executives don't see the need to restructure a system that has been in place for 20-30 years. If it works why fix it? So how can you start getting more executives to think strategically about their IBM i systems?

Showcasing the power a modern IBM i system has as an engine for growth in a company is a great first step. Convincing executives that your IT systems are not a risk to invest in is much easier with a strategy in place to help modernize those outdated systems. The problem is that many developers don't have a set strategy to present to their executives on how to bring forth a modern IBM i system. In a recent webcast survey on the power of mobile applications, almost 60% of attendees said that they were still developing a 3-year strategy for their IBM i application modernization.

(That number is staggering! Profound Logic can help make this daunting task simple and painless with our Profound UI and Profound.js suite of tools!)
