We’re excited to be Headline sponsors at Node Summit 2018 and look forward to connecting with you around some great technology. To help make your experience even better, the IBM team is delivering  some exciting sessions, providing hands-on experience in QuickLabs, and will have some of our key subject-matter-experts at our booth to discuss the latest in Node.js, Cloud Native development, AI integration, and more.

Hands-on QuickLabs (15 minute)

July 24-25 in the Exhibition Area

We’ve made it easy to try out the latest code patterns covering a variety of current topics in Cloud Native development with Node.js. Bring your laptop or use one of ours and get hands on experience with Node.js and other open technologies including Apache OpenWhisk (serverless), Kubernetes, and many others to build cloud native applications and services supporting AI, IoT and Mobile solutions.

You’ll be able to try one or more of the following during the conference. Why wait for training days when in just 15 minutes you can successfully build cloud native apps and services in the IBM Cloud, including:


  • Call for Code – get more insightful search results with Node.js and Watson Discovery
  • Cloud Native Development – build Serverless microservices
  • Cloud Native Development – Create Highly Scalable Web Application Microservices with Node.js

Answer the Call for Code

Answer the Call for Code

The growing, impactful open source community has accelerated the advancement and availability of cloud, data, mobile, and AI technologies. Now is the perfect time to empower developers to wield these technologies to help the over 2.5 billion people who have been directly affected by natural disasters since 2000.

2017 was one of the worst years of record for fires, floods, earthquakes, and storms. IBM finds it imperative to help solve such a pressing societal issue, which is why we are the founding member of the global Call for Code initiative created by David Clark–aiming to support the work of the United Nations Human Rights Office and American Red Cross’s international network in their efforts to minimize the devastating human impact of fires, floods, hurricanes, earthquakes, and tsunamis.

Who better to quickly discover new and innovative ways to help these efforts than you and the Node.js Community?
