About NodeConf Remote

NodeConf EU's annual event in Ireland is not just a conference, it’s a gathering of the NodeConf family. 280 attendees from 32 countries across 5 continents came together in 2019 to share ideas, stories, insights and have fun. For those who come annually, it’s an experience not to be missed.

The organizers of NodeConf want the experience that is NodeConf EU to remain constant, while still taking actions to protect their communities around the world. To that end, NodeConf EU will return in 2021 and in its place this year they are introducing NodeConf Remote to allow everyone to connect virtually.

Red Hat sessions

Serverless with a chance of Cloud Events
Luke Holmquist, Sr. Software Engineer at Red Hat

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.

CloudEvents is a specification from the CNCF for describing event data in a common way to help with cross service and cross platform communication. In this talk, we will see how we can use the CloudEvents Javascript SDK to receive and send properly formatted events.

Chronicles of the Node.js ecosystem

Bethany Griggs, Sr. Software Engineer at Red Hat

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? Bethany 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

Michael Dawson, Node.js lead for Red Hat and IBM

We all know and love to develop with Node.js but how/where is it delivering real value in the business world? How can we share what we've learned from these deployments? Join Michael to 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.

Building cloud-native AI-infused web apps with Node-RED

Nick O’Leary, Node-RED Project Lead at Red Hat
John Walicki, IBM Developer Advocate

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 walks 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.

  • November 4, 7:00am - 8:30am ET / 12:00-13:30 Dublin Time

Kubernetes For JS Devs

Joel Lord, OpenShift Developer Advocate at Red Hat

Learn to build and deploy cloud-native Node.js applications on Kubernetes through a series of hands-on lab examples. By the end of this workshop, you’ll be deploying, scaling, and automating JS-based distributed solutions using containers, Kubernetes, and other popular open source tools for distributed computing.

  • November 5, 9:00am - 10:30am ET / 14:00 - 15:30 Dublin Time

Red Hat is a proud sponsor of NodeConf Remote.
