About the company

Deno is founded by the same engineers who built Node.js, the JavaScript runtime used by millions of developers and used by nearly all websites in one form or another. Deno is a continuation of the ideas in Node; a modern take on server-side JavaScript development. The open source project has already secured itself among the ranks of the most popular projects on GitHub.

Our commercial product is cloud service for hosting JavaScript servers. It is one of just a handful of implementations of serverless at edge in existence. By repurposing web browser technology for server software, we aim to accelerate a new generation of extreme low-latency edge applications.

Deno is backed by the most lauded and household-name investors in Silicon Valley (we can tell you more privately).
