You are npm

Thank you for your support!

On November 26, 2013, Nodejitsu reached out to the npm community for help running the public npm servers. They delivered.

This page is about the crowdfunding drive we ran to help raise funds for improving and continuing to run the npm registry service for node.js. We asked for $200,000 to help with server and labor costs, and in about half the time we had given ourselves for the campaign, we raised over $300,000 for the project. It happened because people like you, and companies like yours, reached out to support the cause. This page is about the people and companies that made it happen.

We raised $256,000 from these awesome companies:

If you’re a node developer, these companies should be at the top of your list for who you might want to work for :). They understand the importance of giving back to community.





...and another +$70,000 from the community
