Red Hat at NodeConf Remote 2020

Red Hat is heading to NodeConf Remote to partner with IBM in demonstrating a few of our favorite production-quality tools and solutions, all designed to help your team maintain productivity while successfully navigating the vast and rapidly changing cloud-native landscape.

Talk with an expert during the virtual booth crawl and get a look at our latest workflows for building cloud-native JavaScript solutions on Kubernetes and OpenShift! Our open source experts will be available to demonstrate how JavaScript and Node.js integrate with other technologies like authentication, distributed data caching and streaming, or business automation to deliver real value to customers.


Serverless with a chance of CloudEvents

Luke Holmquist , Sr. Software Engineer, Red Hat

In this new world of serverless functions, events and their data are the driving factor in triggering these functions. However, Event-Driven data can come from anywhere, and the problem is that most platforms have their own format on how the data is structured.

The lack of a common way to describe events means that as developers, we are constantly having to re-learn how to consume these events. But all hope is not lost. This is where CloudEvents can help.

CloudEvents is a specification from the CNCF for describing event data in a common way to help with cross-service and cross-platform communication. This talk will demonstrate how to use the CloudEvents Javascript SDK to receive and send properly formatted events.

Chronicles of the Node.js ecosystem

Bethany Griggs , Sr. Software Engineer, Red Hat

The sheer vastness of the Node.js module ecosystem poses challenges for the consumers, authors and maintainers. How do consumers know which of the one million modules to rely on for their production deployments? How do module authors handle their hobby projects evolving into a widespread, critical dependency? What happens to abandoned modules? How can a module author test the impact of their changes on dependent applications? Bethany will highlight these problems and also showcase the work that the Node.js Package Maintenance team is doing to try to help solve these problems.

Real-world Node.js success stories

Michael Dawson , Node.js lead for Red Hat and IBM

We all know and love to develop with Node.js but how and where is it delivering real value in the business world? How can we share what we've learned from these deployments? Join Michael to hear about real-world success stories where Node.js is being used at both large and small scales to deliver value and get the job done, and what we're doing to capture and share some of the lessons learned.


Building cloud-native AI-infused web apps with Node-RED

Nick O’Leary , Node-RED Project Lead John Walicki , IBM Developer Advocate

Wednesday, 4 November, 12:00-13:30 (Dublin Time, GMT+1)

In this workshop, participants will learn how to use Node-RED to create a photo booth web app infused with AI through the use of TensorFlow. The workshop walks through getting started with Node-RED, creating the web app and then containerising it, so it’s ready to be deployed into the cloud or onto edge devices.

Kubernetes for JS devs

Joel Lord , OpenShift Developer Advocate, Red Hat

Thursday, 5 November, 14:00 - 15:30 (Dublin Time, GMT+1)

Learn to build and deploy cloud-native Node.js applications on Kubernetes through a series of hands-on lab examples. By the end of this workshop, attendees will be deploying, scaling and automating JS-based distributed solutions using containers, Kubernetes and other popular open source tools for distributed computing.
