Node.js Interactive North America is approaching fast and takes place November 29-December 2 in Austin. This awesome event is a good balance of community, fun and serious shop talk. Below are the top 11 reasons why you should join us in Austin.
And if you need more than 11 reasons or just hate lists, then check out this video from Node.js Interactive Europe to see our best event highlights.
#1 Curated for developers by developers
Don’t just take our word. Rick Adams, manager of IT application portfolio of digital interfaces at Lowe’s, said of last year’s event: “Node.js Interactive is curated by developers for developers. It’s not a sales pitch, this is a way to educate yourself about Node.js.”
#2 Connect with the community
This event hosts people from both the Node.js community and enterprises. It’s a great introduction to how the Node.js Project works as a whole and you get to meet with the people who are actively contributing to its codebase.
#3 Access to the experts
Leading enterprises and Node.js contributors attend and speak at the event. You’ll have the opportunity to talk with them about Node.js best practices and learn about new tooling to help your Node.js environment.
#4 All are welcome — it’s not just about the tech
How do we create more inclusive communities where diversity can truly thrive? Node.js Interactive is a conference that’s not just about the tech, but the people behind it. Node.js Interactive welcomes long-time contributors and those wanting to jump on board for the first time.
#5 The future of Node.js and the larger ecosystem
What does the future of Node.js look like? You’ll hear from the people driving the code forward within the Node.js Project as well as experts in broader Node.js ecosystem. Doug Wilson, lead maintainer of Express, will be keynoting the conference as will Ashley Williams from npm.
#6 In-depth technical workshops
How do you build desktop apps using Electron? Have you ever been interested in conversational interfaces and using Node.js to help people talk to machines? Want an know how to deploy and scale your Node.js applications with Kubernetes? These are just a few workshops that will provide hands-on information to learn how to better implement Node.js across technologies and new computing paradigms.
#7 Exposure to new trends and innovations
#8 Party in Austin!
Austin is an awesome city! Our opening night party for all Node.js Interactive attendees will take advantage of the city’s great local music talent. It has some awesome restaurants, more bbq too. Plus, you can do a little surfing and you’ll even make it in time for bat season.
#9 You’ll only have to pay for one ticket for the Thanksgiving Holiday
Coming back from a Thanksgiving trip? Book your return flight directly to Austin and expense it! Hey, why not?
#10 Meet with people you’ve been collaborating with for years
So often we work together across GitHub, but rarely meet in person. Node.js Interactive gives you the opportunity to meet the people that you’ve been collaborating with for years.
#11 No Agenda
Node.js Interactive is hosted by the Node.js Foundation, a community-driven not-for-profit. Our focus is education and community building so enterprise users and developers can expand their adoption and success with Node.js. That means no single vendor, company or agenda rules the event.
