Guest of the Week (7/28/17): Charles Beeler, Rally Ventures

Guest of the Week (7/28/17)

Charles Beeler, General Partner, Rally Ventures

Congratulations Charles! You are theCUBE’s Guest of the Week.

Going back to 2012, there was plenty of discussion in technology circles about Node.js, a JavaScript runtime based on Chrome’s V8 engine. It held tremendous promise as a lightweight, efficient, non-blocking development framework that was made to order for the Web. The problem was that no one was using it.

Fast forward to 2017, and the picture has changed dramatically. Node.js now has a broad diversity of applications inside the enterprise, and a foundation report shows that three in four Node users plan to increase usage over the coming year. It is also currently described as having the largest package ecosystem of open-source libraries in the world.

The expanding interest in Node.js has pleased Charles Beeler, general partner at Rally Ventures, who produces the Node Summit conference series. “It’s not just Internet companies. You look at Capital One, and some of the big banks and true enterprise companies that are using this; it’s been fun to watch,” Beeler said.

During Node Summit 2017 in San Francisco, California, Beeler spoke with Jeff Frick (@JeffFrick), host of theCUBE, SiliconANGLE’s mobile livestreaming studio, reflecting on how the Node community is dealing with its own growing pains. His insight spans the developer’s role in applying Node.js to markets across the Internet of Things and cloud deployments, as well as the technology’s changing landscape for cybersecurity.
