What is NodeConf EU?


NodeConf EU is the key Node.js event in Europe, providing a forum for the Node.js community. It takes place on an estate just outside the medieval city of Kilkenny, Ireland. Kilkenny is the neighbour of Waterford - the worlds new Node.js centre of excellence and home of nearForm.

NodeConf EU is THE networking event for Node.js developers, tech managers and CTO’s, as well as an awesome social event for everyone - including sponsors, partners and families.

Our Past Events


nearForm’s competence in conferences has been growing since 2012, when the company organized and hosted the first ‘Node Dublin’ event. Four years later, we are proud to be established as Node.js event specialists on a global level. The hallmark of these events is their democratic atmosphere: industry giants and hackers alike become one community and collaborate in a positive learning environment.

The unflinching aim is to deliver the highest quality talks, the most relevant workshops, and the most fertile, collegial atmosphere to ensure that attendees have the best conference experience possible. Our goal is to create an environment where everyone can relax, share their stories and learn from one another.
