By all accounts, the first Node Foundation led event, Node Interactive, was an incredibly successful event. I feel honored and privileged to have attended this inaugural event with some of IBM’s brightest Open Tech stars. If you didn’t make it to Portland, well at least you missed all of the rain! But you also missed some fantastic sessions and networking events. Here’s a quick tour of team IBM had to offer at the event.

Our own James Snell had the honor of presenting the opening keynote at Node Interactive and gave us a tour of recent Node Foundation accomplishments and the exciting next steps ahead. Yes, I’m biased since I work with James but you definitely want to check out the replay of his keynote as he gives a great overview of the Node Foundation.

IBM’s Jason Gartner followed James with his presentation “The world is being reinvented in Code” – making it real by showing IBM Node.js based offerings in action.

Stepping from the main stage for a minute, here’s a quick behind the scenes look at discussions at Node Interactive. IBM’s Todd Moore had a chance to sit down with The New Stack to talk about progress at the Node.js Foundation. Here’s a recording of the resulting podcast.

And now back to some of the great public presentations you missed at Node Interactive – enjoy!
