About the session

Node.js started as an experiment on how to use Javascript to build fast HTTP servers. Node.js evolved into a powerful runtime that is now used by developers all around the globe, from small companies to big enterprises. In this keynote, we will delve into the growth of Node.js and its module ecosystem, and how the project moves forward. We will focus on the security aspects of the ecosystem and of Node.js core, and we will finish discussing several reference architectures for deploying Node.js in production.
