Following the great news that the Node.js community is now shipping binaries for Linux on z Systems, Linux on Power, and AIX for the latest LTS and Current releases I’d like to let you know that a technical preview is now available for z/OS from IBM.

You’ll notice that the version is a bit older (v0.12.x) due to some issues in dependencies, but we felt that have an initial version of Node.js available for testing/experimentation was better than waiting until all the pieces were in place to deliver the latest version.

You can download the technical preview here:  https://developer.ibm.com/node/sdk/#ztp.

Please try it out and give us your feedback.  We are looking to work with you to understand any issues you encounter and help you through the process.

If you are interested in compiling yourself or contributing to development, the work is being carried out in this github repo:  https://github.com/ibmruntimes/node/tree/v0.12-zos-ascii.
