Node.js reference architecture

It's that time of the year again, and NodeConf EU is almost upon us. This annual event is one of the leading Node.js events in Europe. It brings together contributors and innovators from the Node.js community to deliver a wide range of talks and workshops.

The conference will be back in person this year after being virtual for the past two years on October 3rd–5th in Kilkenny, Ireland.

The Node.js team here at Red Hat will be talking about lesser-known Node.js Core modules as well as guiding attendees through a workshop that will get you familiar with cloud-native development with Node.js. 

Talk: Journey into mystery: Lesser-known Node Core modules and APIs

Wednesday, October 4th, 2022, 9:30 UTC

Presenter: Luke Holmquist (@sienaluke), Senior Software Engineer, Red Hat

One of the key concepts of Node.js is its modular architecture, and Node makes it very easy to use a wide variety of modules and APIs from the community. Some of the modules and APIs that are part of Node.js Core are very familiar, like HTTP and Events. But what about those lesser-known core modules just waiting to be used? This talk will journey into mystery as we explore some of the lesser-known Core modules and APIs that Node.js offers.

Workshop: Elevating Node.js applications to the cloud

Wednesday, October 4th, 2022, 3:00 UTC


  • Bethany Griggs, Senior Software Engineer, Red Hat
  • Michael Dawson (@mhdawson1), Node.js Lead, Red Hat
  • Luke Holmquist (@sienaluke), Senior Software Engineer, Red Hat

This workshop provides an introduction to cloud-native development with Node.js. We will walk you through building cloud-native Node.js applications, incorporating typical components, including observability components for logging, metrics, and more. Next, we'll show you how to deploy your application to cloud environments. The workshop will cover cloud-native concepts and technologies, including health checks, metrics, building containers, and deployments to Kubernetes.

Collaborator Summit

There will also be a OpenJS Collaborator Summit in Dublin, Ireland on October 1-2, 2022, two days before NodeConf EU. We hope to see you there to discuss all things JavaScript and Node.js. Our team members will be leading or active participants in many sessions.

The Collab Summit is for maintainers or core contributors of an OpenJS project, plus any open source enthusiast interested in participating. This is the time for deep dives on important topics and to meet with people working across your favorite JavaScript projects. Get more details on the OpenJS website.
