Open Source Dependency Governance

Content length: approx. 4 - 6 hours (customizable)

Node.js-based projects, including projects using Angular (and most other web frameworks) rely on an ecosystem of open-source packages via the npm package manager's public repository. While that public repository contains an abundance of useful, freely-available packages, its use in enterprise-scale applications comes with potential security and licensing risks to understand and manage.

In this class we will:

  • Explain how the npm package manager works
  • Explain how the npm public repository works including policies by npm, Inc. that affect how public packages work in the npm ecosystem
  • Explore how to govern third-party open source dependencies in Angular and Node.js applications
  • Investigate tools for governing third-party open source npm dependencies

The class/session is oriented toward enterprise users of Angular and similar frameworks, and can include substantial discussion, especially for private engagements.


In addition to this open source / third party dependency governance topic, we also offer a class on application / project / program governance. Our governance offerings generally use Angular-related technologies for examples and specifics, but the material generally applies far beyond Angular.
