In the context of JavaScript, a community is a group of people who share an interest in learning, developing, and using the language. This could include developers, designers, educators, and hobbyists who come together to share their knowledge and experience with one another. The community can provide support for new learners, resources to help deepen understanding, and a platform to collaborate on projects. Ultimately, it serves as a place to foster growth and innovation in the field.

The Hidden Cost of Open Source
There is a cost that many companies don’t consider when using open source. It can cost a lot of money and time to keep upgrading sunsetted versions.Open source is free for companies to use until the author sunsets a version.These are some best practices that we we recommend when considering open source adoption:        - Who is the author? Do they have a strong reputation that is going to be around for a long time? Do they have the resources to support an enterprise library?        - How much online support is there in the community for this library? How many dependencies are on this library?        - Does it have an end of life policy? What’s going to happen when they rev on a version? Will companies have an option to stay on older versions for a long time?        - What should you consider when migrating to a supported framework after a version has been sunsetted?

What We Owe to Each Other
Open source has won, and it's the center of gravity for our community. Whether we're contributors to open source projects, commercial product engineers, companies, developer advocates, or something else, we're all a part of this community. And we owe it to each other, and to ourselves, to leave the community better than we found it.
But how do we do that? What responsibilities do companies have to the community? Or developer advocates? Or OSS contributors? How are we failing those responsibilities, and how can we do better?
In short, what do we owe to each other? Let's find out.

Bringing the New React Native Architecture to the OSS Community - Fall Edition
At the end of 2021, we successfully rolled out the New React Native Architecture in the Facebook app. Now, it’s time to empower every React Native developer on the globe to use the New React Native Architecture, both the new Fabric renderer and the new TurboModule system. But migrating an entire ecosystem to a New Architecture is no easy task. To support the whole community in this endeavor, we lined up a set of tools and materials that will help both app and library developers to join us in this journey. In the talk, we will present how the New React Native Architecture looks in the OSS space. We will discuss the impact this will have on developing React Native projects. Lastly, we will cover what we learned from the React Native New Architecture migration at Meta, and how you can tackle your migration in your organization.
