Node.js Collaborator Summit
The week kicked off with the Node.js Collaborator summit (in parallel with many other mini-conferences). As always it was a great way to catch up in person with other Node.js collaborators. Overall the summit covered key work in the project like security, triage, website, technical priorities and more. Our team co-led a number of sessions on the future of Node.js (Next-10 Lets get the News Out, Next-10 Building Long Term Contributors) where we got some great feedback in the brainstorming sessions. Watch for issues in the next-10 repo for next steps based on that feedback. It was a great way to connect and catch up on work across the Node.js project and have some great hallway track discussions.
Open Source Summit
The Open Source Summit started each day with keynotes followed by up to 16 different tracks of parallel talks. Common themes across the tracks included:
- Security and supply chain security
- Open source communities and common issues and challenges
OpenJS World Track
The OpenJS World track had 9 talks which all delivered in terms of content and interest. We are hoping that we might be able to have more parallel talks in the future or maybe even a dedicated Node.js track as I had feedback that could have made it easier for people to travel to the conference. One of our favorites was “Cross-dimensional Careers: Transitioning from Frontend to Backend - Jennifer Creighton & Wes Todd, Netflix which shared two unique experiences moving from front to backend.
Our team’s talks
The Red Hat Node.js team along with our IBM partners were part of delivering 3 talks as part of the overall conference which included:
- Panel Discussion: OpenJS and Security Updates with Community Panel - OpenJS World
- Node.js - What's Next - Catalyzing Change in the Node.js Ecosystem - OpenJS World
- Improving the Security of a Large Open Source Project One Step at a Time- SupplyChainSecurityCon
Many thanks to all of those who attended and for the great conversations afterwards. Recordings will be available soon for those who could not make the conference.
Overall the conference was a great experience and we are looking forward to NodeConf.eu in November as the next opportunity to get together and talk about all things Node.js.
