Announcing NodeConf London 2016
By Ian Crowther

The annual NodeConf EU is one of nearForm’s great success stories. Now we’re bringing that history of success and excellence to London. I’m very excited to announce that the inaugural NodeConf London event takes place in the iconic Barbican Centre on Wednesday May 11, 2016. Tickets cost £200 and are available now.

What’s on offer?

This is a one-day, single-track conference with a laser focus on what people need to know about Node.js. It brings together the sharpest minds from the enterprise with the industry’s leading software development heavyweights and the finest talent that London has to offer.  With such an emphasis on talent, I’m proud to reveal the line-up of illustrious speakers:

With so much on offer, the last thing we want is for attendees to feel overwhelmed! So we’ve structured the content of the day into four segments: Start it, Build it, Ship it and Use it. Let’s look at each of these in turn.



Start it

So you have a technical challenge, be it a legacy stack or a new set of algorithms. This segment of the conference aims to give you the confidence to start your new project, and to help you use Node.js in the right places.

Build it

Now that you’ve decided to start your project, you need to know how to build it. Let our experts give you the facts you need to know about Node.js Core, V8 and ChakraCore. We’re not here to demonstrate the latest tools—we want to give you the knowledge to build the latest tools.

Ship it

So you’ve solved the technical challenges. Now you need deploy from your laptop into production. Learn how to optimize your continuous deployment pipelines for success while increasing in confidence along the way.

Use it

Congratulations! Your product is a success and you have lots of new users. Now you need to know how to scale your architecture in a robust, secure and efficient way. Let our experts show you how they have achieved success.

Pay it forward

Community is a key value at nearForm and we’re keeping that very much in focus for NodeConf London. Proceeds from the event are being donated to three local groups that mean a lot to everyone involved: NodeGirls, NodeBots and NodeSchool London.


What’s more, speakers can elect to donate their fee, thus generating even more cash for the causes.


NodeConf London scholarship

Continuing the spirit of the previous paragraph: we’re aware that not everyone who is passionate about and committed to Node.js may be in a position to pay for a conference ticket. With this in mind, I’m delighted to announce the NodeConf London scholarship. This scholarship makes available a number of tickets at no cost. nearFormer Dean McDonnell explains the details and how to apply for the scholarship.


Tickets for the conference are available now. Remember, with your ticket purchase you’ll be helping our non-profit causes (see above). And please promote and share the event in your own networks, especially the scholarship. Follow NodeConf London on Twitter and subscribe to this blog for conference news as it happens!
