In security, Open Source Security Foundation (OpenSSF) selected Node.js as its initial project to improve supply chain security. Node.js is the first open source community to be supported by OpenSSF’s Alpha-Omega Project. Alpha-Omega committed $300k to bolster the Node.js security team and vulnerability remediation efforts through the rest of 2022, with a focus on supporting better open source security standards and practices.
Day One kicked off with Robin Ginn, OpenJS Foundation Executive Director welcoming everyone. She was joined by Chris Gervang, Senior Visualization Engineer at Joby Aviation to announce that OpenJS was adding UCF to its foundation family through the new OpenJS Open Visualization Collaboration Space. UCF has for years been a forum for developers to collaborate on a common set of open source tools connecting cities, people, and mobility.
Other keynote speakers included:
Additionally, we featured more than 40 breakout sessions across a variety of topics from AI to application development and project-specific talks. All of these are available on demand.
We showcased several announcements at the conference that reinforce our community’s goals in testing, security and visualization. See below, as well as on our Day 1 blog for more details.
OpenJS Foundation Welcomes Urban Computing Foundation
The OpenJS Foundation announced that the Urban Computing Foundation (UCF) has partnered with OpenJS to form the Open Visualization Collaboration Space. The Open Visualization Collaboration Space provides a place to openly govern the most comprehensive and widely adopted visualization libraries based on WebGL. UCF is also merging its day-to-day operations and budgets into OpenJS where it will govern these projects and more under the new OpenJS Open Visualization Collaboration Space. Two of its most popular visualization projects – vis.gl and kepler.gl – are moving under the umbrella of the OpenJS Foundation.
Foursquare, HERE Technologies, Joby Aviation and Uber join The OpenJS Foundation
OpenJS has welcomed four UCF members who are now members of the OpenJS Foundation: Foursquare, HERE Technologies, Joby Aviation, and Uber. Open visualization technologies are core to each of these companies’ leadership positions in the market, and by supporting the foundation, they are supporting the infrastructure and long-term growth of key open source projects that they rely on.
