About Nodeconfeu

November 5th - 8th, 2017  |  Kilkenny, Ireland

NodeConf EU is first and foremost about community. A community that is kind to its members, a community that values diversity. NodeConf EU is the key Node.js event in Europe, providing a forum for the Node.js community. It's a gathering of minds in an informal setting. It offers attendees an opportunity to meet with their friends, peers and speakers in a relaxed, welcoming, friendly and most importantly respectful environment.

The conference provides a learning environment like no other, attendees join together as strangers and leave as friends. Some of the earliest people in Node join together in Ireland each year at the conference to celebrate Node. It's a place where you will find some of the best speakers and experts on the subject of Node, Discussions about collaboration and about becoming contributors to the Node product.

This conference involves a community of peers, there are no VIP’s, everyone is equal and open to answer questions about node or technology, mingle and solve problems together.

We are a community, One of the founding principles of this community is that we are all different, we're all individuals, and we should respect each other for exactly what we are.

Below is a sample of a successful Talk from last years NodeConf EU.

JSOFF, a world without JSON

The ubiquitous data interchange format of JSON has enjoyed a long lived dominance in web applications. JSON is easy to use, human readable, and natively supported by node/all browsers. But is JSON a good format? Is it efficient? Are there better alternatives to JSON out there? Introducing Flatbuffers, a Google technology that is designed for fast serialization / deserialization and is supported by all major languages. In this talk, learn about turbo charging application performance through FlatBuffers.
