Highlights of Node+JS Interactive 2019
On December 11th and 12th, more than 500 community members of the OpenJS Foundation convened at the Montreal Convention Center on the fourth version of the Node+JS Interactive, one of the most important Node.js conferences in the world.
There were some big announcements, keynotes, talks, networking, sponsor showcases, workshops, panels and more!
Check out this article to see what made this edition so special.
She also announced that Electron, the popular open source framework, joined the OpenJS Foundation as part of its incubation program 🎉.
Write Once, Run Everywhere and “universal” needs to be a platform concern and not a development target.
Then Adrian Estrada VP of NodeSource and David Clements Principal Architect of NearForm, were on the stage to talk about Node.js Certifications, Detailed Overview.
They explore the reasons of the creation of the certification and why developers should get it, also the principles, quality assurance, long-term integrity measures, the exams expectations, the virtual machine environment, pricing, scholarships and an overview of the two certifications.
Later that day (and also on the second day of the conference) they hosted a great workshop to get the attendees familiar with the certification, structure and some of the questions.
The next keynote was with Joe Sepi, Open Source Engineer at IBM, who talked about “Making your Open Source Project Foundation Ready”. He mentioned some of the projects of the OpenJS Foundation and how to create a good environment and structure for your projects.
The next keynote was extra special ❤️
Sara Chipps and Ellie Galloway, did a fantastic talk on how to code like a girl! Including live coding using Jewelbots. She is a big inspiration for other girls and kids to start learning to code.
After the keynotes, talks and workshops started, including:
