BrowserStack and Sourcegraph Support Shared JavaScript R&D, Help Developers & Enterprises Innovate Faster
SAN FRANCISCO – May 12, 2017 – JS Foundation, the Linux Foundation project dedicated to accelerating time to market and enabling long-term sustainability of key JavaScript solutions, announced today BrowserStack and Sourcegraph have joined to support the Foundation’s mission.
“Organizations of all sizes are turning to JavaScript as their technology of choice to solve their most important full stack challenges,” said Kris Borchers, Executive Director, JS Foundation. “I would like to welcome and thank these newest members for their commitment to supporting the advancement of open source JavaScript and their ongoing efforts within the community.”
Through its comprehensive support and governance programs, the JS Foundation ensures stability while encouraging continued advancement of key JS technologies such as lodash, Moment, jQuery, webpack, Mocha, ESLint and many more that collectively power nearly every modern application.
Affirming that point, Quinn Slack, CEO and co-founder of Sourcegraph said, “We love the JS Foundation because its projects let JavaScript devs spend their time creating applications, not reinventing the wheel. The time we’ve saved not having to build our own bundler, thanks to webpack, or relative date formatting, thanks to Moment, means we can focus on making Sourcegraph a better way for developers to search and navigate code.”
The JS Foundation’s efforts in standards bodies and advancing JavaScript as a language are also important. “JavaScript has been essential to the growth and evolution of the modern Internet,” said Ritesh Arora, Co-founder of BrowserStack. “We are honored to do our part and support the JS Foundation to help them continue to achieve great success.”
