The OpenJS Foundation today welcomes two new members to the Board: Myles Borins from GitHub and Guilherme Hermeto from Netflix.

Myles Borins

Myles Borins is a staff product manager at GitHub where he helps to product manage the npm CLI as well as other cloud integrations. No stranger to open source governance, Myles previously served on the OpenJS Foundation Board as a Platinum Director representing Google, and previous to that, served as the Technical Steering Committee elected director on the Node.js Foundation Board. Myles is an involved and active member of the OpenJS and Node.js communities as well as a TC39 Co Chair and Delegate, representing GitHub and Microsoft. Myles received his BA from Ontario College of Art and Design and his Master’s degree from Standford. As the Silver Board Director, Myles is excited to represent a new group of individuals, the silver members, at the board and to continue to support OpenJS as a center of gravity for vendor-neutral collaboration on core JavaScript Open Source Software.

Guilherme Hermeto, a Senior Platform Engineer at Netflix, is joining the board as an End User Director. In his role at Netflix, Guilherme helps to design and develop the company’s internal serverless Node.js platform, which powers the Netflix user interface as well as web application infrastructure that supports the company’s content production. In addition, Guilherme serves as a Netflix delegate to TC39. In his role as a board member, Guilherme hopes to leverage his experience as a user of many OpenJS projects to represent the end-users’ views. Guilherme earned his Associates from Universidade do Sul de Santa Catarina.

The End User Board position is new this year. Netflix has a large-scale Node.js deployment that serves as the front door for the majority of the Netflix consumer product experiences. The engineering team also used other OpenJS projects across its company, including LoDash, Mocha, and ESLint. 

“It is a pleasure welcoming Myles and Guilherme to the OpenJS Foundation board, as I know both will bring a wealth of experience and passion for Javascript to our mission,” said Todd Moore, OpenJS Foundation Board Chairperson. “We’ve experienced such great momentum, from launching new certifications and trainings, to onboarding new projects, and having these two talented professionals will only help us to continue facilitating collaboration within the JavaScript development community.”

“It’s an exciting time for the OpenJS Foundation as our community continues to grow,” said Robin Ginn, OpenJS Foundation Executive Director. “A strong board of directors is an important component of the overall success of the Foundation and I’m so happy to welcome Myles and Guilherme to the board. These trusted leaders will help the Foundation and drive broad adoption and ongoing development of key JavaScript solutions and related technologies.”

The OpenJS Foundation is thrilled to welcome Myles and Guilherme and is honored to have them on the board.
