Agenda

 



Day One: Tuesday, December 3rd

Day One kicks off with the first ever NodeTalk followed by panels and talks highlighting the widespread use of Node.js in large scale development environments. The afternoon includes a panel discussion on the Node.js community and wraps up with first set of NodeJam competitors pitching their startups.

  • 7:30 AM REGISTRATION & BREAKFAST

  • 8:30 AM Setting the Stage for Node Summit

    Emceed by:
    Jason Hoffman, Emcee, Node Summit
  • 8:40 AM NodeTalk: Getting the Most from v1.0

    The v1.0 release is going to be a big deal for the community, and it’s in everyone’s best interest to know how to implement their programs in the most effective way. Version 0.13 is dedicated to improving performance, so practices that were used in previous versions may no longer be optimal when v1.0 is released. This NodeTalk will step through internal changes and outline differences in behavior, and with each show simple examples of how they can be used in practice.

    Speaker:
    Trevor Norris, Node.js Core Maintainer, Mozilla

    • 10:25 AM – NodeTalk: Monolithic Systems Engineering with Node.js – Room 2
      Enterprise software teams are starting to understand and embrace the power of Node.js. They face a serious challenge: Integrating Node.js into the legacy systems they maintain and then migrating these systems over time into Node.js architectures. This talk is a pathfinder for those facing these challenging tasks. This talk will also cover how we, as a community, must proactively engage with the Java and .Net communities, and create a deeper understanding of the “Node.js Way”.

      Speaker:
      Richard Rodger, COO, nearForm
    • 10:25 AM – NodeTalk: Bulletproof Node – Room 3
      One of the many beauties of node is the simplicity and elegance. However, virtually all Node applications and services are plagued with a lack of fault tolerance that more mature platforms handle out of the box. What if, with as little as one line of code, and a narly npm package, we can turn any node app into Bulletproof Node?

      Speaker:
      Aaron Silvas, Software Architect, GoDaddy
  • 11:00 AM NodeTalk: Release the Kraken: A Story of Node.js in the Enterprise

    A case study in how PayPal revitalized its tech stack by moving from Java, JSP and proprietary solutions to a Node.js web application stack with dust.js templating. Developer agility was our primary motivation, but along the way we had to tackle enterprise culture and teach people that JavaScript is no longer a “toy”, but a powerful tool to wield.

    Speaker:
    Jeff Harrell, Director, UI Engineering, PayPal
  • 11:20 AM Big Data and Node.js

    We couldn’t resist putting “Big Data” and “Node.js” in the same title (it’s SEO gold!). Apparently a bunch of people can’t resist actually leveraging one to make the other a reality.  These people help make it all possible.

    Moderated by:
    Ben Wen, VP Product Marketing, Joyent
    Speakers:
    Sam Bisbee, CXO, Cloudant
    Jonathan Gray, Founder and CEO, Continuuity
    Aaron Heckmann, Tech Lead, Recurly

  • 12:00 PM Reflections on Three Years of Node.js in Production

    While Joyent is well-known as the steward of Node.js, we are also one of its earliest adopters, having deployed Node.js-based services in production starting over three years ago. In this talk, we will describe our Node.js odyssey, including the challenges, the battle scars and the victories — and how our experiences have informed our stewardship of Node.js. We will detail why Node.js remains the right tool for so many of our jobs, discussing in particular the implementation of our new Manta storage service. We will outline our best practices for developing and deploying Node.js-based systems, and our view of the future of Node.js in production.

    Speaker:
    Bryan Cantrill, SVP of Engineering, Joyent

    • 12:45 PM – NodeTalk: Solving the Four Problem Categories of Web Development with the MEAN Stack – Room 2
      If you’re building a new web application, the problems that you run into generally fit into one of four categories: (1) Prototyping: I want to build something quickly, (2) Adapting: I want to be able to easily iterate on my code base, (3) Testing: I want to make sure that the app works and (4) Scaling: I want to utilize server resources efficiently. This NodeTalk will provide a high-level overview of how the MEAN stack, and in particular Node.js and npm, solve each of these pain points.

      Speaker:
      Valeri Karpov, Kernel Tools Engineer, MongoDB
    • 12:45 PM – NodeTalk: Node.js, APIs, Apps and Data: A Perfect Match – Room 3
      Everyone knows the technology world has transitioned to one of APIs and apps, backed by data. What’s less obvious is how organizations get to take part in this new world, and how they can handle the resulting changes. Organizations require tools that allow them to build and deploy services quickly, scale them and change them on the fly. At Apigee, we use Node.js as a critical part of this toolset. In this talk we will outline how we and our customers are using Node.js to deploy apps, support APIs and analyze data.

  • 12:30 PM LUNCH (Workshops and NodeTalks – Located on Level 2)

    • 12:45 PM – NodeTalk: Let’s Publish Better Node Modules – Room 1
      The Node.js ecosystem is growing at an incredible rate. Our package manager, npm, is stuffed with useful software, and it’s very easy to contribute. However, the quality of modules across the ecosystem is variable, and sometimes it’s tough to separate the wheat from the chaff. In this presentation, we will look at techniques used by successful node module authors to make high-quality modules that are easy for developers to use. The challenge put to this audience will be taking their module authorship to the next level, and driving even greater adoption of node.js.

      Speaker:
      Kevin Whinnery, Developer Evangelist, Twilio
    • 12:45 PM – NodeTalk: Beyond the MEAN Stack: Getting Small for the Enterprise – Room 2
      Teams choose Node for enterprise applications because it makes it easy to write small applications that run fast and move huge amounts of data. Node’s efficiency comes as much from what it *doesn’t* do as what it does. Rather than building an enterprise stack on a single set of modules, harness the real power of Node by taking advantage of its great module system and strong ecosystem of third party modules.

      Speaker:
      Forrest Norvell, Node.js Agent Engineer, New Relic
    • 12:45 PM – NodeTalk: BigData.js – Room 3
