Howdy!

Hot off the heels of Node Interactive Amsterdam, we are only weeks away from Node Interactive North America that will be taking Austin TX by storm.

As a board member of the Node.js Foundation and IBMer, I’m very proud to, once again, be able to support a great community event. I am not alone as my fellow IBMers are also counting down the days and are honored to have 1 keynote on the mainstage and 7 technical sessions on the agenda, as well as a number of demos to be showcased at our booth. IBMers from IBM Watson IoT, IBM Graph, IBM Bluemix, IBM APIConnect, IBM OpenWhisk and a crowd favorite, Code Rally, are eager to engage with other members of the node ecosystem because Node.js is integral to our continued innovation and development at IBM. We truly look forward to converging together to, once again, collaborate and network with this rapidly growing community. The Node community is on track to grow 100% year over again this year.

What can you expect?

So many great conferences have used Austin as a venue this last year and now it Node Interactive’s turn to do the same. Great music, food and friendly people are the hallmark of Austin and why I decided to make the area my home 22 years ago. So, please join me and check out our sessions from our Node experts! Again for Austin, IBM will sponsor On November 29th the Diversity Coffee Talk that will give the entire Node.js Community the opportunity to brainstorm ways to promote diversity. We are deeply committed to building an inclusive, friendly community. From there, the attendees are treated to Node.js experts on the keynote stage and of course a multi- track technical agenda that continues through November 30th and last, but certainly not least, we are very excited to be able to sponsor everyone’s favorite event, the Node Interactive AfterParty!
