THIS SESSION HAS REQUIREMENTS AND INSTRUCTIONS LISTED BELOW

Over the last year, the Node.js community has not only witnessed remarkable growth in adoption, but also the entrance into a new era of maturity. Evolving from the language of choice in the startup space to achieving more production use than ever in the enterprise has brought its own set of challenges and realizations.

Project Lead TJ Fontaine has spent the last year navigating this growth in adoption and subsequent growth in community complexity. In particular, he’s heard from all layers of the community about what’s working, what’s not, and what the ecosystem collectively hopes to see for the next few years of the project. In this session, TJ will discuss those questions and share insight for Node.js’ future as he marks one year as project lead.
