Members of the IBM and StrongLoop team will be attending Node Summit in San Francisco, CA on July 26-29, 2016. We’re proud to be a Primetime Sponsor for the event, which describes itself as “the largest event focused exclusively on Node.js”.
There will be several speakers from IBM. The Node Summit schedule provides a rundown of them, which we are quoting below:
July 27, 10:50 AM
Chris Bailey (Runtime Technologies Developer) will discuss “Emerging Web Application Architectures“.
While Node.js is becoming the platform of choice for web-scale applications, enterprises are resistant to change and have legacy applications based on other technologies, typically Java. Emerging web application architectures bring together the web-scale and integrated browser characteristics of Node.js with the transactional nature of Java to deliver high-performance, engaging web applications. Learn how the complimentary characteristics of Node.js and Java are being used to build the next generation of web applications.
July 27, 12:00 PM
Rachel White (Front End Engineer, IBM Watson) will take part in the “Node.js Community Panel“.
The Node.js community continues to grow and evolve. Hear from some of the people who are helping make it a critical part of the success of Node.js.
July 27, 12:50 PM
Raymond Camden (Developer Advocate) introduces “Rapidly Building APIs with LoopBack“.
In this session, IBM Developer Advocate Raymond Camden will introduce you to the LoopBack framework. LoopBack is an open source framework laser focused on rapidly building REST APIs. Raymond will discuss what LoopBack does as well as demonstrate multiple examples of it in action.
July 27, 4:00 PM
Myles Borins (Node.js Collaborator) discusses “Node.js Releases, How Do They Work?”
Node.js is growing up, and with that comes the responsibility of proper legacy support. As of Node.js Argon (v4.2.0) there is an official Long Term Support release cycle that lasts for 30 months! How does a project moving at the pace of node maintain multiple release lines? How does a commit get backported? How is a release actually made? Come find out!
July 28, 9:05 AM
Michael Dawson, (Senior Software Developer) covers “Micro-Apps With Node.js, Browsers, Phones (cordova), and Electron“.
Micro-applications written in Node.js are ideal when you want a small amount of logic, need to interact with IoT sensors or other devices and want a limited UI. Learn how to use Node.js to build these small applications that can be accessed remotely but at the same time can appear as desktop applications using electron (http://electron.atom.io/) and native mobile applications using cordova (https://cordova.apache.org/)
July 28, 10:15 AM
Chanda Dharap (Program Director) will be part of a moderated discussion “Everybody Needs APIs“.
Not only does (almost) everybody need them, but they need to get them right, which is no simple trick. Panelists will discuss both developing APIs and working with third party APIs with a particular focus on what works and what developers leveraging Node.js should look out for.
July 28, 11:25 AM
Steven Loomis (Unicode Software Engineer) discusses “Intl as in Internationalization: Tools for Global Node.js Applications”
