In order to make your time at Node.js Interactive as enjoyable as possible, we have a lot of activities happening and also a few extras to help you contribute back to the Vancouver community.

Check them out below and we hope to see you there!

Rise and Shine!

What better way to start a conference than getting up at 6:45 am on October 4 and joining in a 5K fun run/walk. The run and walk will be guided by the Node.js Foundation’s amazing education community manager, Tracy Hinds.

Added bonus: anyone who joins will be entered to win a drawing for a free pass to Node.js Interactive 2018. Yeah!

Tux’s Bookworms

The idea is simple: collect 20,000 children’s book donations from people attending any Linux Foundation conference worldwide this year. Books will be donated to children the local community after each conference.

Want to help us reach our goal? Bring one (or more!) of the following types of books with you to the event. New or gently used books in English, published recently (published within the last 10–12 years is a good rule of thumb) suitable for children aged 8 and under. We can’t accept textbooks, dictionaries or encyclopedias.

We have a list of local places where you can buy books if you don’t want to lug one with you from home.
