Devine has created a set of live coding tools for rapid iteration and creation of rythms based on Node.js.

We’re looking specifically at open source projects or initiatives, with or without a code, but following an open and transparent culture, open for collaboration and contributions from any person interested.
Github stars are not our criteria, and we’re looking for hidden gems (non yet maintstream), that may not have enough marketing power or huge companies behind them. The main goal of the project is to shed some light on great projects, that weren’t enough noticed in a competitive environment and hype.
to the community
When we established our JS meetup 9 years ago, we never imagined we would welcome up to 1400 attendees at our events and organize 4 meetups and multiple spin-offs in Europe. Our secret? We welcome people from all walks of life in our community, and we are a proud partner of initiatives like Unicorns in Tech, the global tech network for LGBT professionals and straight allies.
We know that supporting diversity inside and outside IT must not end at mere statements, which is why are now developing diversity scholarship programs that will be announced in the coming weeks.
