nodeday is a one-day conference that showcases the best, latest and most interesting knowledge and skills from the international Node.js community. This year’s nodeday Amsterdam took place on February 11, 2016 at the iconic Machinegebouw building in the city’s historic Westergasfabriek (gas factory) site.
