Node Summit

Node.js is now informing entire patterns of engineering, setting a new industry-wide standard for modern computing by enabling modular, iterative workflows that support the demands of ‘always-on’ customers. -- Charles Beeler, producer, Node Summit

Node Summit, the only conference focused on how Node.js is transforming the future of computing, today announced new headline speakers for the third annual Node Summit, taking place February 10-11, 2015 in San Francisco at the Mission Bay Conference Center. Launched in 2011, Node Summit seeks to engage Node.js experts, enthusiasts and developers in a discussion of the dynamic runtime’s place at the center of the growing web ecosystem. Speakers will participate in content-rich discussions, panels, and featured presentations, as well as in NodeTalks –real-world case studies highlighting high-profile web applications across the Node ecosystem.

The conference will feature speakers from a cross section of the technology industry involved in implementing Node.js, including application developers, component and device makers, data center providers, network operators, platform and service creators and leading innovators. More than 80 speakers are confirmed to take the stage during Node Summit, including Travell Perkins, CTO, Fidelity; Antonio Silveria, VP Engineering of GoDaddy; Eran Hammer, Director of Node Services, Walmart; Scott Anderson, Director of Software Engineering, MasterCard Worldwide; and Jeff Harrell, Director of Engineering at PayPal. Raquel Vélez of npm will be serving as Emcee of the proceedings.

At Node Summit, business leaders and technology experts will come together to explore how Node.js is enabling the creation of real-time, high performance, scalable, networked applications. Attendees will learn how Node.js impacts businesses and consumers today and hear visionary ideas for future implementations of the runtime.

“As Node.js has evolved, its influence has moved beyond its original role in application design,” said Charles Beeler, producer of the Node Summit Conferences. “Node.js is now informing entire patterns of engineering, setting a new industry-wide standard for modern computing by enabling modular, iterative workflows that support the demands of ‘always-on’ customers.”

In addition to featured speakers, Node Summit 2015 will include the return of NodeTalks, where leading technology experts from across the Node ecosystem will share real-world Node.js case studies and give talks highlighting the rapidly growing number of high profile web applications that rely on the emerging Node.js ecosystem.
