Basics

NodeSource is co-ordinating three events coming to Los Angeles, Washington D.C. and Seattle in 2016 and early 2017. Outside of those specific events, we’d also love to hear from Node.js and JavaScript speakers worldwide who are working in, or serving the enterprise for any future NodeSource speaking events.

NodeSource CFP

Once a quarter, the NodeSource event and community teams reach out to members of the Node.js ecosystem for new talks, workshops and papers. Speakers participating in the CFP will have the opportunity to speak at NodeSource events, EnterpriseJS as well as NodeSource supported meetups like SFNode and NodeDC. NodeSource has events slated for Los Angeles, Washington D.C. and Seattle. The need for enterprise and professional JavaScript speakers and writers is increasing (exponentially) - NodeSource is enabling this in the U.S. and around the globe.

JavaScript, and Node.js in particular, has transformed the way applications are built, making it possible for enterprises to break apart their monolithic applications into manageable, scalable, and highly adaptable components. Successfully navigating this transformation can be challenging. JavaScript and Node.js are differentiated from the many other platforms due to the fact that so much of the ecosystem has evolved in the “Age of GitHub” where collaboration and, more importantly, communication are first-class citizens. This transformation is spreading and scaling like never before. The realities of the enterprise are unique. The NodeSource CFP wants to help developers share that experience.

To Node.js and Beyond

Node.js provides the foundation and coming together point for enterprise-grade JavaScript, but NodeSource has very purposefully extended the scope of our interest in how large-scale JavaScript is being deployed to extend beyond the server-side.

Much of the time Node.js initiatives are providing the backend to equally large-scale frontend initiatives. The unique challenges of the enterprise include: “what framework choices allow diverse teams to work best together,” “how do you balance forcing consistency while still enabling the vibrant developer ethics of JavaScript,” “how do you deliver a rich user experience?”. Node.js is typically driving these platform choices, but is not a direct dependency.

Ultimately, it’s all JavaScript. JavaScript is powering the experiences we deliver to browsers, to mobile, to desktop platforms, to device platforms. Our runtime VMs are modern and fast. We are constantly leveling up the complexity and constraints of the devices we are working to deliver experiences to. These experiences are now being delivered directly to TVs (10 foot devices), consoles and embedded devices.

What we’re looking for

We’re putting out this CFP for our three upcoming events, in addition to collecting paper proposals for NodeSource events going beyond our currently planned events in 2016 and early 2017.

We are most interested in 20 minute talks, 50 minute workshops, and literal paper presentations, covering JavaScript usage and topics that would be engaging and interesting to the individuals and organizations larger-scale Node operations.

We’re putting out this CFP for three upcoming events in 2016 and 2017, in addition to collecting paper proposals for NodeSource events going beyond those planned events.

We are most interested in 20 minute talks, 50 minute workshops, and literal paper presentations, covering JavaScript usage and topics that would be engaging and interesting to the individuals and organizations larger-scale operations implementing or maintaining systems, services, and solutions made with Node. This would hopefully be achieved through collaboration, conversation, and education on Node-related topics.
