Red Hat and IBM will both be back as sponsors, and will be delivering some great talks as well. The last two conferences were remote affairs, but this year's edition will be held in person in Austin, Texas, from June 6th through 10th.
If you are there in person, stop by either the Red Hat or IBM booth to talk.
Talks and keynote
The Node.js team here at Red Hat will be talking about upgrading Node.js as well as the future of the environment. Joe Sepi, our partner at IBM, will talk about embracing open source to cope with the great reshuffle. We hope to see you at these talks.
Talk: Debugging your way through a Node.js Upgrade
Presenter: Bethany Griggs (@bethgriggs_), Senior Software Engineer, Red Hat
Tuesday, June 7th, 2022, 3:40 p.m. CDT
New major versions of Node.js are eagerly anticipated for all the new features and capabilities they bring. But for many engineering teams, upgrading to a new major version can be a daunting process. It's not always easy to associate a change in your application's behavior with an entry in the changelog. And it's not always obvious if or how you will need to amend your code to successfully upgrade. In this talk, Bethany will share her experiences helping teams upgrade to new versions of Node.js, with some practical shortcuts and tips she's learned along the way.

Keynote: Embracing open source to beat the great reshuffle
Presenter: Joe Sepi (Joe_Sepi), Program Director of Open Tech, IBM

Integrating open source at the core of your business makes good sense from a business perspective in a variety of ways. In this keynote, Joe will focus on the people part of the benefits, from talent to culture. Empowering employees to be authentically engaged in open source can provide access to an excellent hiring pipeline, help insulate companies against the "great reshuffling," and bring you greater returns on your investment.
