Node.js Interactive Europe — Cheers to a Great Event

Recently Node.js users and developers from around the world came together for a two-day conference in Amsterdam: Node.js Interactive Europe. The goal of the conference was to exchange knowledge, best practices, and gain insights into the future development of Node.js and its adjacent technologies.

Speakers from top open source projects like Express and NodeBots, vendors in the ecosystem and mainstream enterprises like IBM, Microsoft and Netflix joined together to provide best practices and tooling around Node.js as well as the overall growth and needs of the current Node.js project. Node.js is currently the fastest growing open source platform in the world with 400 new modules published to npm every day and an estimated five million Node.js users with a growth rate of 100% year over year.

The conference kicked off almost exactly one year after the io.js and Node.js merger, and a year and a few months after the Node.js Foundation was established. Since then, the Node.js project has developed a long term support plan, added a total of 87 contributors with commit access to the project and a total of 1,084 individuals to its contributor list. Working with the Foundation, the project also has started an education certification program and working groups focused on tracing, testing, documentation and more.

The success of the project can be contributed to the community that is supporting and building this technology and the versatility of Node.js. The technology is central to the concept of a new full stack developer that is innovating across Web frontend, mobile/tablets, desktop applications, cloud backend, IoT devices, and API and microservices architectures.

If you weren’t with us in Amsterdam, here is a summary of some of the most popular sessions broken down by category:

Web Frontend

Mobile

Desktop Applications

Cloud Backend

IoT Devices

API and Microservice Architecture

Debugging and Security

Hey Austin — We are Coming to You!

If you weren’t able to make it to Europe, we’ll be heading to Austin, TX from November 29 — December 2 for Node.js Interactive North America. You’ll have a chance to learn more about how you can best use Node.js in your enterprise and get a sneak peek at evolving trends in the Node.js and JavaScript ecosystem. It’s also a great way to meet the community and those interested in Node.js for in-person collaboration and knowledge-sharing. Plus, Austin isn’t a bad trip to take in November :)
