Everyone loves the open source module ecosystem in JavaScript, you can rapidly develop new applications using tried and tested technologies, collaborate, integrate and innovate at a pace never before known. But Twitter is awash with developers pushed to burnout, and module maintainers unable to cope with the unexpected success and long term support requirements for their gifts to the community. There are many proposed solutions to open source economics, in this talk, we will discuss the practical steps the Node.js community is already taking to support module maintainers, and how we can come together to make this ecosystem work for everyone. This will include how you can help, how you can get support, and how we can ensure our code is built on reliable and secure foundations.
