What We're Looking Forward to at AWS re:Invent

Next week the NodeSource team will be heading out to AWS re:Invent in Las Vegas. As one of the biggest annual events in the space of cloud computing, we’re excited to head out and talk to everyone that’s using Node.js on AWS.

We’ve run through some of the (literally) hundreds of events and workshops happening at AWS re:Invent, and wanted to share just a few of the ones that we’re really excited about - all enabling you to build and deploy Node.js with AWS services.

If you or your team work with Node.js (or are planning to!) and are going to be heading out to re:Invent, consider signing up for a one-on-one meeting with the NodeSource team to see how we can help you with Node.js.
