NodeConf EU 2023 Wrap up - 30 second Red Hat perspective

Michael Dawson

Red Hat was recently at NodeConf EU, which was held on November 6-8th 2023.  This is one of the key Node.js events in Europe and always puts on a great show. As was the case in recent years it was held in-person at the Lyrath Estate in Kilkenny, Ireland. Over the 3 days, there was a mix of talks in the morning and workshops in the afternoon. If possible, this year there was even more content related to development and work within the Node.js project than in past years, balanced by talks covering the use of Node.js to deliver value.
