Our inherent creativity and passion to build an optimised open source stack means that we allocate time and resources to ongoing and sustainable contributions. We are known leaders in the open source community globally, currently one of the largest contributors to Node.js, the fastest growing open source project in the world. In 2018, we authored and reviewed 67% of 1963 total commits to Node.js Core and NearFormers contributed to modules that represented 8% global npm downloads.
We have a high calibre of contributors to other major open source projects such as Fastify, Hapi, Pino and React. We have deep IoT network and protocol expertise and NearFormers have been responsible for modules that have been used by some of the world’s largest organisations for their IoT services – for example, MQTT.js used by IBM, MS, AWS. NearFormers are also responsible for high performance modules that organisations like Netflix use for all frontend logging infrastructure.
