Speed Networking and Mentoring Sessions, Diversity Sponsorship Opportunities, and More Amazing Add-Ons at JS Interactive

Beyond an amazing roaster of keynotes, panels, workshop and sessions (including, Going FaaSter: Function as a Service at Netflix, What’s New in Node.js Core?, Node.js Meets Docker), the event will have a speed networking and mentoring session, Code + Learn, Node.js Collaboration Summit, and a job fair (more details coming soon).

Speed Networking & Mentoring Session

Are you looking to grow your technical skills, join the Node.js community or tackle a career change? Whether you’re new, or not so new, to open source and Node.js (or JavaScript) this mentorship program will pair you with someone to help you on the next chapter of your career. Would you like to become a mentor for this? We welcome you to apply too! More on how to register as a mentee or a mentor here.

Code & Learn

Code & Learn events allow you to get started (or go further) with Node.js Core contributions. Experienced contributors help guide you through your first, second or third commit to Node.js Core.

If you are looking to become a part of the Node.js community or are curious to learn how to contribute to Node.js Core, this is a must-attend event. The event takes place directly after the two-day conference on October 12. Registration is required in advance, and the opportunity is complimentary to all those who attend JS Interactive. You can register during the JS Interactive check out process.

Are you a student?

You can attend the event for $100 USD. This is a great opportunity to learn more about Node.js and how to get more involved with the Node.js community. Information on student and academic pricing here.

Node.js Collaboration Summit

The Node.js Collaboration Summit is a day and a half event that follows the JS Interactive conference (October 12 — October 13). This is a Node.js community-organized event where individuals involved in the Node.js project will collaborate and discuss subject matters important to them, whether it’s next steps with HTTP/2, diagnostics, modules, website redesign, mentor initiatives, etc.

This event is open to everyone, however it moves very quickly and there will be no onboarding with topic discussions. If you are interested in joining this Summit, you must register in advance. Signup is available during the JS Interactive check out process.

Support the Diversity Scholarship Effort

Lastly, we had more than 300 people apply for our diversity scholarship. We want to ensure that we can offer as many scholarships as possible, but we need your help! Ask your company to become a diversity scholarship sponsor. More information on costs and how to participate in this opportunity here.

You also have the opportunity to support diversity on an individual level by donating money to diversity when you register for the conference.
