Spend a Full Day Immersed With a Leading Node.js Master

Workshop Details

"One of the things I love about Node.js is the emphasis on small modules and a lean core - for me, it makes the platform and my dependencies easier to understand.

The flip side of that strength, however, is paralysis of choice. There are a million ways to do everything, and batteries are rarely included. And how to actually deploy and measure the effectiveness (both in scale and UX) of web applications is usually an exercise left to the reader.

The goal of this course is to present a technology stack and toolchain that you can build on, test, and operate in production. I suspect every Node developer will want to tweak or customize the stack we'll present, but it's a proven place to start based on my experience building production APIs in Node.js"

~Kevin Whinery

Over two days, equip yourself with the knowledge to build, test, deploy, and scale Node.js web applications in production.

Join Kevin Whinnery and learn invaluable skills you can take back to improve your Node.js applications.
