TJ isn't the be all and end all of nodejs, it's a good bow-shot that the community should start solving some real problems.  #pumpedfornode

This is a sad day for the Node community. I hope someone will pick stylus soon!

Wow, this is big. I guess we have to see if there will be any maintainers to the orphaned projects now.

It's all good. Just time to move from express to hapi ;) just in case

Express is now maintained by Doug Wilson who is the author of numerous modules including the excellent mysql driver for node. There are other maintainers listed as well.

I was one of his followers on github until like a week ago.
I started to following him to see interesting JavaScript projects.

But a week ago I realized that my news feed has been for some time almost nothing but things like:

* visionmedia starred abc/go-*
* visionmedia starred def/*-go
* visionmedia starred ghi/someothergoproject

I guess that's why I'm not surprised.

Well, it's a good chance for you to start learning Go.

I tried Go a little - it is really better than JS, but education curve is rather steep.

Golang fits best for those who feel pain because JS lacks strong typing.

Wait, what? How is TJ Holowaychuk abandoning nodejs for Go "a good chance for ME to learn Go"?

haha, perhaps my comment made me sound like I was a super big fan of Holowaychuk, but no; since he was very active on the JavaScript community, I started to following him on github. And that is because I'm very interested on JavaScript and related projects.

(This comment made me chuckle: I imagined myself like I was a silly teen saying something like "omgz, TJ is using Go now! omgz omgz let's learn Go asap!" hahah)

So no, I'm not gonna try Go just because he is using it now XD

"Koa is the one project I’ll continue to maintain"

I read that part as well, but given that TJ is saying he is leaving the community and Koa hasn't seen the strong adoption of Express.js yet I wouldn't be putting any of my eggs in that basket either.

I wonder how much the timing of the post is influenced by the upcoming/deferred ES6 ?
