It seems like only yesterday that the Node.js Foundation was formed, and what followed was an astounding pace of development including 2 new versions released in under a year, a 100% growth of contributors and a community that shows no signs of slowing down! In December 2015, the Node.js Foundation brought us the very first Node Interactive. It made its debut on the scene with over 700 developers who converged to talk, share, collaborate and develop together over a 2 day jammed packed agenda. It was then, that it became clear that our Node.js Foundation family was only going to grow.
Now in September 2016, another first for the Foundation, the first Node Interactive in Europe! On September 15th – 18th, in Amsterdam Netherlands, Node Interactive EU kicks off with a fantastic agenda that includes Node experts from all over the world.
As a board member and IBMer, I’m very proud to be part of this burgeoning community. Many IBMers are bringing topics to the technical track and IBM is again a sponsor. Our whole extended team wanted to get involved, so much so, that we have more than 10 sessions included in the agenda. Clearly, everyone is excited to share their expertise with the community. And lastly, but certainly not least, IBM is a champion of promoting a diverse open technology community. Because of this ongoing commitment, we are partnering with the Node.js Foundation to open up the discussion around diversity with a session on the challenges and opportunities that our diverse worldwide members face while working in the technology industry. We look forward to ideas from everyone. Let’s partner together to promote a community of full inclusion. We hope everyone in Node.js will join us!
Check out our sessions from our Node experts!
