Serverless, security, diagnostics, machine learning and Internet of Things are a few of the many different topics that will be covered during Node.js Interactive. Today, we are announcing the agenda and roster for this years conference taking place October 4–6 in Vancouver, Canada. We had more than 250 talks and workshops submitted for the conference. Thank you to all who took the time to submit your ideas; we greatly appreciate it.

Node.js Interactive is the only Node.js conference that brings together the Node.js community for collaboration, education, and networking. It features talks, panels, workshops and keynotes to help developers build their skills and Node.js and JavaScript enterprise users push the limits on Node.js in production.

We Heard You!
Based on feedback from last year’s attendees, we added talks on diagnostics, emerging case studies (machine learning, desktop/electron, IoT), front-end engineering, security and Node.js in production (deployment, scaling, services).
