March 2014 Meetup - Node.js on the Road w/ Joyent & Friends

04 March 2014

The Seattle Node.js Meetup is pleased to announce that the fine folks at Joyent are coming up to Seattle as a part of their “Node.js on the Road” show and bringing a fantastic panel of speakers, including TJ Fontaine, the Node.js project lead. The event will be held at SURF Incubator’s Dice Cabana meeting space downtown.

We’re thrilled to have Seattle host the show along with San Francisco and Portland, and hope to see you out! Please join us Tuesday, March 18, 2014 from 6:00 to 9:00 PM for this great opportunity to listen to and interact with folks who drive and lead Node.js.


In addition, the speakers and other Seattle-area Node.js experts are coming out for our inaugural “Node.js Office Hours” the next day, Wednesday, March 19, hosted at DevLocal in Fremont.

So come see the talks and panel on Tuesday, and hack on Node.js with the pro’s on Wednesday!


This special event has a dedicated EventBrite registration page that you will need to sign up for in addition to your usual Meetup RSVP on the meetup event page. Double sign-up is a bit of a hassle, but this allows us and Joyent to keep the RSVPs under control and ensure a wonderful night for all.

Then you can also RSVP at the Meetup event page.


We have a great group of Node.js core project and community developers:

The Road Show

A little more background into the aim of Joyent’s Road Show:

The profile of users developing and deploying Node.js in production is always changing. As new people come to Node, or as the needs of veterans change, it’s important for that information to find its way back to the project. Similarly, it’s important for those who are deploying Node in production to bring their wisdom to those just starting out. To that end, Joyent is sponsoring Node.js on the Road, a roadshow aimed at keeping the community connected with the project and production users of Node.

We’ll be bringing speakers from large and small companies alike to share how they’re using Node in production. To talk about the where’s, why’s, and how’s of Node fitting and scaling to their companies’ needs. Also, they’ll be discussing the ways they coordinate with the Node project and the broader community.

But this isn’t a one way road, we want to hear from you too. We want to know about your uses of Node, where Node is being successful for you, and where your pain points are. The Node project is nothing without this feedback, it’s vital to make sure Node is heading in the direction its users need.

It’s going to be a fun trip. I can’t wait to share with you all the exciting things going on with Node, and to get more people involved.
