At Microsoft, Node.js represents a true cross platform technology that is enabling solutions ranging from cloud computing to Internet of Things and beyond. Microsoft’s Chakra team started an initiative to support Chakra, Microsoft’s own Javascript engine, as an alternative VM for Node.js. Although maybe still surprising to someone, all of the work that our team has done to enable this support is being done in the open, wherein not only is the code open source but we have been actively looking for community feedback and participation to learn and improve. In this session we’ll discuss some of the learnings we had during the process, and in particular talk about:

• What key challenges the team met along the way to support a different VM and how we overcame the same?
• Where are we with the current support and what’s next?
