About NodeConf

Node Conf 2022

The event

Our History

NodeConf EU has rightly earned its reputation as the leading key Node.js event in Europe. As we celebrate NodeConf’s 10th anniversary this year, it is our aim to deliver the highest quality talks, the most relevant workshops and to continue to provide a relaxed and friendly atmosphere for people to meet and share ideas. Over the 3 days, you will hear from over 30 speakers which are hand-picked based on their contribution and level of innovation within the Node.js community.

We are delighted to be back in Ireland in 2022 hosting our first in-person event since 2019. Over the past two years, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we ran two very successful virtual NodeConf events. As a nod to this, we will be hosting 2022 as a hybrid event, allowing us to engage with our online audience too.
