Take a Trip through JavaScriptLandia

During the OpenJS World, Jory Burson and Joe Sepi discussed the OpenJS Foundation’s efforts for getting the community involved in projects by creating collaborative spaces

.

Jory Burson, Community Director at the OpenJS Foundation, spoke with Joe Sepi, an Open Source Engineer at IBM. The discussion started with Sepi explaining how the Cross Project Council (CPC) helps open source projects by providing advice, support and multiple avenues for work collaborations. 

The concept of collaboration spaces was created to provide opportunities for people in the ecosystem outside the project or the foundation to get involved. Burson elaborates that this is a way for the whole community to work together. 

Additionally, the Standards Working Group is another active space where people with all levels of experience are welcome to join. One of the goals this year is to develop a set of resources and a website for developers to get involved in standardization. 

Another key program recently launched by the OpenJS Foundation is JavaScript Landia. This is the individual supporter program, and it gives anyone access to online information where you can support different projects, collect badges, and much more.

In conclusion, Burson and Sepi both encourage viewers to join and become involved in the community by joining Slack, accessing Github and visiting openjsf.org/collaborate. They emphasized that the only requirement to be involved is a passion for JavaScript and a desire to help!
