Package Vulnerability Management & Reporting Collaboration Space

By Blog

OpenJS Foundation announces first Collaboration Space: Package Vulnerability Management & Reporting

Last year, the OpenJS Foundation announced a new initiative to better align multiple communities on common issues and concerns. Collaboration Spaces are meant to help community-led efforts reach broader audiences and coordinate stakeholders from across the JavaScript ecosystem. We are excited to formally announce our very first Collab Space, Package Vulnerability Management & Reporting, championed by Wes Todd, Senior Software Engineer at Netflix and Darcy Clarke, Engineering Manager of the npm CLI team at GitHub.

When it comes to vulnerability reporting, maintainers must manage many issues – from updating dependencies to broader communications when a new CVE is reported on a popular library in our ecosystem. Many of these are being considered “false positives” from an impact/vulnerability perspective. This level of noise creates distrust in the relationships among security companies/researchers, maintainers, & the collective end-users/consumers.

The Package Vulnerability Management & Reporting Collab Space will create a neutral forum for ecosystem stakeholders to discuss and collaborate with the intention to improve CVE reporting and resolution workflows while minimizing the burden on maintainers quieting noise for consumers. This cross-functional effort has a wide reach and impacts Security Research/Organizations, Package Maintainers, and End-users/Consumers.

The goals of the Package Vulnerability Management & Reporting Collab Space include:

  • Improve delineation of domains & controls
  • Improve communication between maintainers & security researchers/organizations
  • Improve tooling for package auditing, resolution & management as a whole Impact & users of the project

Current Collab Space members include:

  • Darcy Clarke (@darcyclarke) – Champion
  • Wesley Todd (@wesleytodd) – Champion
  • Zbyszek Tenerowicz (@naugtur)
  • Christopher Hiller (@boneskull))
  • Michael Dawson (@mhdawson)
  • Dominykas Blyžė (@dominykas)
  • Jordan Harband (@ljharb)
  • Marcin Hoppe (@MarcinHoppe)

The founding participants of this Collab Space see far-reaching benefits for the entire JavaScript ecosystem. This is of particular importance to the JS community due to the deeply interconnected relationships created with package dependency trees. Additionally, this work can, and does, extend beyond the scope of the JavaScript ecosystem itself.

Node.js Certification: Validate Your Skillset

By Blog

An interview with Ionut Alixandroae, Senior Software Engineer at Esri, on the OpenJS Foundation Node.js Certification experience.

Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/ialixandroae
Twitter: https://twitter.com/ialixandroae

The OpenJS Node.js Application Developer certification (JSNAD) is a program designed to certify Node.js developers who have two or more years of experience working with Node.js. This program helps establish developers credibility in an extremely competitive job market. Having a certification helps set you apart from other candidates as it consists of exams covering applications and service deployment. 

Certification is online and proctored, simulating on-the-job scenarios. There are two versions, one for services development and one for application development. It is a two hour test that requires the implementation of multiple solutions within a Remote Desktop Linux environment. For more information on how you can get certified, test your abilities and strengthen your resume, click here.

We wanted to better understand how the Node.js Certification experience is helping developers stand out, so we spoke with Ionut Alixandroae. Ionut is a senior full-stack engineer from Munich, Germany working at Esri who took this course and recently got certified.

Ionut is currently working on his vision to create a personal technology blog, where he plans on sharing knowledge in the form of tutorials that cover various topics on Node.js.

Why did you want to be certified?
I am a full-stack developer with a background and proficiency across several programming languages. I have been using Node.js in the last 4-5 years in different projects and products, and the main reason for getting certified was a personal decision and aspiration: I wanted to prove and validate my Node.js dexterities through a certified authority such as OpenJS Foundation and The Linux Foundation. 

The second reason for buying the bundle and passing the certification was to consolidate and enhance my existing knowledge. 

What was the JSNAD testing experience like?
The certification exam is challenging and, indeed, the level is, at least, intermediate. It doesn’t challenge your ability to guess a correct answer from a list, but it challenges you to provide solutions to real problems using the Node API. This differentiates it from other exams and adds more value to it. The time is short if unused properly and some challenges felt a bit ambiguous in description and scope. I am extremely happy I passed the certification in one go, and overall, I strongly recommend it! 

How has completing the JSNAD certification impacted your work?
It added more assurance to my NodeJS software engineering abilities, and perhaps, transformed me into a more productive and robust engineer. 

What are your next steps?
I’m currently thinking about creating a personal tech blog, where I would like to share the knowledge and skills with other learners by providing practical tutorials and a broad spectrum of lessons covering different aspects of Node.js development and usage. 

Thank you, Ionut! Good luck with work and your new challenges. We’re looking forward to seeing your personal technology blog up and running!

The certification exam comes with the option of a free retake exam and for a limited time, a free testing environment preview to prepare for the upcoming exam. If you have any questions regarding the test, please click here.

We are also excited to offer all registrants of OpenJS World a special discount on Node.js Certifications and Trainings. Learn more here: https://openjsf.org/blog/2021/05/13/special-offer-get-50-node-js-certification-and-training-when-you-register-for-openjs-world/

Reaching New Heights with Node.js Certification

By Blog, Certification

An interview with Prosper Opara, Junior Fullstack Engineer at Deimos Cloud, on the Node.js Certification experience.
Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/prosper-opara/
Twitter: https://twitter.com/kodekage

Quote from Prosper Opara in white text on a green fading to blue background. Quote reflects the value of Node.js Certifications.

The OpenJS Node.js Application Developer certification (JSNAD) is the ideal certification for Node.js developers with two or more years of experience working with Node.js. Certifications and Training are a good way to stay on top of current industry skills and standards, as well as test your own abilities. If you are interested in learning more about how you can get certified, test your skills, and improve your resume, you can do so here.

We wanted to talk with someone who had recently taken the certification, and hear exactly what the process was like and what the benefits are. We talked with Prosper Opara, a Junior Fullstack Engineer at Deimos Cloud. Opara is a Linux Foundation Training (LiFT) Scholarship recipient, which gave him the opportunity to prepare and sit for the certification exam. LiFT Scholarships provide opportunities to up-and-coming developers and sysadmins who show promise for helping shape the future of Linux and open source software but do not otherwise have the ability to attend training courses or take certification exams. 

Opara is full-stack JavaScript developer and a self proclaimed “agnostic developer” who doesn’t say “no”  to learning and working with new technology stacks.

One overarching theme in Opara’s answers is the strong value that the JSNAD exam had for his resume and duties at his current position. 

Main quote: “…The certification has helped solidify my claims to proficiency in Node.js and that’s a big booster to achieving my goal and getting promoted.”

Why did you want to be certified? 

I’m a junior engineer and recently just started working full time for a cloud focused company huge on employees getting professional certifications. Deimos Cloud funds certification efforts for employees, that’s how serious we take certifications at Deimos Cloud! I was lucky enough to get the Linux Foundation Lift scholarship before joining my current team, the whole certification focus at Deimos spurred me into taking getting professional certifications more seriously. I took  the JSNAD exam and passed. 

What was the test JSNAD testing experience like? 

The test experience for me felt like a white board interview (haha), I actually sat for and took the exam twice. The first time I was a bit tense and forgot to test my code solutions most of the time because I felt (I still feel) the 2hrs was pretty short for the certification methodology. It’s pretty tense (haha), but then on my retake I was very comfortable, more relaxed and luckily had time to test most of my code solutions. Nothing is perfect, but I’d rate my overall test-taking experience 7/10.

How has completing the JSNAD certification impacted your work? 

The certification greatly helped improve my confidence in my skills as a Node.js developer, and my team members trust me more with Node.js related projects (because I’m certified). I’m hoping to make more money in future before my certification becomes invalid, haha. But I have gotten a couple Node.js specific job offers already.

What are your next steps? 

I’m currently working towards becoming a senior engineer (that’s really the next big thing for me now). In addition to my ability to solve technical problems with code, the certification has helped solidify my claims to proficiency in Node.js and that’s a big booster to achieving my goal and getting promoted.

Thank you to Prosper Opara for these responses. We’re looking forward to hearing more about your promotions and new challenges. Good luck!

If you are interested in applying for a LiFT scholarship, lean more here:https://www.linuxfoundation.org/en/about/diversity-inclusivity/lift-scholarships/. Deadline to apply is April 30th.

Each certification exam comes with a free exam retake and for a limited time, a free testing environment preview to even better prepare folks to take the exam.

Additionally, all Node.js Training and Certifications are deeply discounted until April 9th. Learn more here: https://openjsf.org/certification/
