Node week is a series of Node related talks from April 10th – 14th. Join nearForm’s Cian O’Maidin, Luca Maraschi, David Mark Clements and Matteo Collina along with more soon to be announced guests. The talks will focus on topics from logging to Hapi.js and everything in between. Our speakers will be delving into some real life experiences and sharing what they have learned along the way.

Introducing some of our first  speakers:

Matteo will be speaking on Monday the 10th of April at 14:00 GMT (09:00 EST). He will be sharing his knowledge on logging and especially his logger Pino. Pino is 17 times faster than traditional loggers, it logs in JSON and can be integrated with Hapi and Express.

    Looking forward to attending these. The times say 14:00 GMT (9:00 EST), but googling that says that 14:00 GMT is 10:00 EST. Just wanted to confirm that the 10:00 is the right time.

      Hi Bradly, it will still be 09:00 EST. For some reason google is not taking into account that US is also in Summertime Daylight savings too.
