NodeConf Remote is coming 2 November, and while it will be a bit different this year with everybody being remote, it will continue to be a premier showcase and reunion of the Node community.

IBM is excited to return as a sponsor and to work with Red Hat as our partner in order to provide updates through speaking sessions and workshops. Below, you will find a detailed list of sessions and workshops where you can learn from and interact with Node.js developers and community leaders from Red Hat and IBM.

We also look forward to talking to you at the Red Hat and IBM booths, which offer a great opportunity to catch up on what our Node.js team is up to as well as how Red Hat and IBM can help you succeed in your Node.js deployments.

Chronicles of the Node.js ecosystem

By Bethany Griggs, Sr. Software Engineer, Red Hat
Monday, 2 November, 13:00-13:30 GMT

The sheer vastness of the Node.js module ecosystem poses challenges for the consumers, authors, and maintainers. How do consumers know which of the 1 million modules to rely on for their production deployments? How do module authors handle their hobby projects evolving into a widespread, critical dependency? What happens to abandoned modules? How can a module author test the impact of their changes on dependent applications? This talk will highlight these problems, and also showcase the work that the Node.js Package Maintenance team is doing to try and help solve these problems.

Real-world Node.js Success Stories

By Michael Dawson, Node.js lead for Red Hat and IBM
Tuesday, 3 November, 15:00-15:30 GMT

We all know and love to develop with Node.js but how and where is it delivering real value in the business world? How can we share what we’ve learned from these deployments? Come hear about:

  • real-world success stories where Node.js is being used at both large and small scale to deliver value and get the job done,
  • what we’re doing to capture and share some of the lessons learned.

Serverless with a chance of Cloud Events

By Lucas Holmquist, Sr. Software Engineer, Red Hat
Tuesday, 3 November, 17:30-18:00 GMT

In this new world of serverless functions, events and their data are the driving factor in triggering these functions. However, Event Driven data can come from anywhere, and the problem is that most platforms have their own format on how the data is structured.
The lack of a common way to describe events means that, as developers, we are constantly having to re-learn how to consume these events. But all Hope is not lost. This is where CloudEvents can help.

SOLD OUT — Join the waiting list

In this workshop, participants will learn how to use Node-RED to create a photo booth web app infused with AI through the use of TensorFlow. The workshop steps through getting started with Node-RED, creating the web app and then containerising it, ready to be deployed into the cloud or onto edge devices.

Kubernetes for JS Devs

By Joel Lord, OpenShift Developer Advocate
Thursday, 5 November, 14:00-15:30 GMT

SOLD OUT — Join the waiting list

Learn to build and deploy cloud-native Node.js applications on Kubernetes through a series of hands-on lab examples.
This interactive session involves using kubectl, curl and common command-line tools to interact with Kubernetes APIs. By the end of this lab, you’ll be deploying, scaling and automating JS-based distributed solutions using containers, Kubernetes and other popular open source tools for distributed computing.
These examples are designed to show JS developers how to maintain speed and productivity with a container-based development workflow.
