Every Monday we take a step back and look at all the cool stuff that went down during the previous week. Last week we had big announcements coming our way with Node.js Foundation and JS Foundation announcing their intention to form a unified ecosystem. TypeScript 3.1 was released, Angular v7 RC becomes available & much more!

We have some big news coming from the JavaScript universe! Node.js Foundation and JS Foundation announced their intention to form a unified ecosystem – in other words, merge!

We invite you to participate in our poll and let us know what’s your take on this turn of events.
