Node.js Mentorship Initiative: N-API Opportunity

This blog was written by A.J. Roberts and the Node.js Mentorship Initiative team. This post was first published on the Node.js blog. Node.js is an impact project at the OpenJS Foundation.

The Node.js Mentorship Initiative is happy to announce our next opportunity. This one is open to developers with experience in C++. You will work hand-in-hand with the N-API working group members with the eventual goal of becoming a full-fledged member of the working group.

If you’re not familiar with the working group, we recommend checking out their recent blog post.

The N-API working group has the goal of making it easier to develop native addons for Node.js and other runtimes like Electron. They have already accomplished a lot of crucially important work for the Native Addons ecosystem. You can help them accomplish even more by improving test coverage, adding features to N-API, and creating examples for native plugin authors to follow.

The N-API working group will set aside time specifically for helping and guiding you, so it’s definitely worth applying through the Mentorship Initiative if you feel like this would benefit you. In order to do that, you should complete the application and its included challenge. The challenge is expected to take 2–4 hours to complete.

Please apply here by January 29th, 2021. We look forward to seeing your submissions.
