According to the 2018 Stack Overflow Developer Survey, JavaScript is the most used language, with almost 70% of all developers claiming to use it. Last year, we covered Google’s plans for web technologies and JavaScript in Fuchsia extensively, including work being done to bring Chrome as the platform’s default browser and additional JavaScript support via Apple’s JavaScriptCore.

At the time, it seemed odd that JavaScriptCore was chosen instead of Node.js for Fuchsia usage. Node.js is based on Google’s own V8 JavaScript engine which has already been ported to Fuchsia for use by Chrome. Node.js is also at the core of web-based technology like Electron, which powers popular desktop apps like Slack and Visual Studio Code.

Google is now looking for Node.js to join the Fuchsia party, according to a hiring advertisement tweeted out by V8 developer Yang Guo, spotted by Android Police.
