The present and the future of the web is in JavaScript. 1.7 billion websites, 95% of all sites, depend on JavaScript. How did this unlikely Number One programming language end up embedded in server-side web servers and databases, and in runtime environments for building mobile and desktop applications?

To help with the next 25 years, the neutrality of the OpenJS as a Foundation is a critical component. Projects and large corporations co-exist. Transparency builds understanding and trust. At the same time, the OpenJS governance model gives a clear priority to OpenJS projects, building a foundation for next-gen web technology development.

Under the OpenJS, uniting the JavaScript Foundation and the Node Foundation, we are building ways to combine strengths as JavaScript extends further into the backend, to the desktop, deeper into mobile, and beyond.

OpenJS hosts over 30 of the most important open source JavaScript ecosystem projects including Appium, Dojo, jQuery, Node.js and webpack. 2 out of the top 3 open source JavaScript libraries are OpenJS projects. Electron, bringing JavaScript apps to the desktop, and AMP, powerful web infrastructure for businesses, are our newest members.

Happy anniversary, JavaScript!
