The first NodeConf London event takes place on Wednesday May 11, 2016, in the City of London’s Barbican Centre. Tickets cost £200 and are available now.
What’s on offer?
This is a one-day, single-track conference that focuses on what people in both the enterprise and software development community need to know about Node.js. Here’s a flavour of the lineup of speakers:
- Kassandra Perch “Robots, Code, and People”
- Nikhila Ravi “Server-less Architecture in the Wild”
- James Halliday “The Disintermediated Web”
- Christian Heilmann “Making ES6 happen with ChakraCore and Node:
- Colin Ihrig “State of Node.js Core”
- Thomas Watson “It Goes to Eleven”
- Emily Rose “How I Learned to Stop Worrying‘
- Andrew Martin “Avoiding Release Paralysis‘
- Jan Lehnardt “Kill all Humans”
- Luca Maraschi “SWIMming in the Microservices Ocean”
- Matt Clark “Node.js that’s Hugely Reliable, Fast, and Scalable”
The day is structured the content of the day into four segments: Start it, Build it, Ship it and Use it. Let’s look at each of these in turn.
So you have a technical challenge, be it a legacy stack or a new set of algorithms. This segment of the conference aims to give you the confidence to start your new project, and to help you use Node.js in the right places.
Now that you’ve decided to start your project, you need to know how to build it. Let our experts give you the facts you need to know about Node.js Core, V8 and ChakraCore. We’re not here to demonstrate the latest tools—we want to give you the knowledge to build the latest tools.
So you’ve solved the technical challenges. Now you need deploy from your laptop into production. Learn how to optimize your continuous deployment pipelines for success while increasing in confidence along the way.
Congratulations! Your product is a success and you have lots of new users. Now you need to know how to scale your architecture in a robust, secure and efficient way. Let our experts show you how they have achieved success.
Pay it forward
