I’ll be at GOTO CPH and QCON NYC spreading the node.js love

Conference season is coming again. I am excited this year that I’ll be finally speaking at goto AND that I’ll be speaking at the first QCon NYC. The topic, well you guessed it, node.js and Windows Azure.

May 21-23


First stop will be Copenhagen where I will be speaking at goto in the “Microsoft, beyond the echo chamber track”  I am really looking forward to this event. I’ve watched it for years before when it was JAOO but never got the chance to attend. I am happy to say this year that will be changing. I hope to see you there!

Presentation: Breaking the Barrier with Node.js on Windows and Azure

June 18-22


I’ll be speaking at QCon NYC in the “Battle of the Clouds track”. If you are planning to attend, you can save $100 by using this promotion code when you register: BLOC100

Presentation: “Unlock your Inner Node.js in the Cloud with Windows Azure”. I’m planning to show some really cool stuff that we have coming down the pike soon at this event, so be there!

After the event, I’ll also be delivering two half day tutorials on node.js.

  • “node.js, jumping in with both feet”. This tutorial will be a basic primer around node.js and take you from 0 to 60 with node.js development. It will cover the basics, common practices as well as popular third party modules.
  • “node.js in Windows Azure”. In this tutorial we will dive into deploying node.js applications to Windows Azure as well as using Azure storage services and ServiceBus from within your node.js apps. We’ll also cover development tools like Cloud9 IDE that you can use for deploying node apps to Azure.

If you are looking to get up to speed with node or to start deploying node apps to Azure come to these tutorials.

While I am in town for both events I’ll be doing a bunch of user group meetups and such. I’ll cover that in my next post

    Hi Marcel
    The best place to go is to the node.js google group. http://groups.google.com/group/nodejs. Folks from Microsoft (like me) are there and we monitor questions relating to node.js on Windows. There are also plenty of folks from the community doing node.js on Windows that also gravitate there.

    Is there an official  (even semi-official) “node.js / Microsoft” site I can ask questions on? I’m not interested in Azure right now and it’s annoying to be unable to connect to MSSQL from node except when on Linux… (sorry to bug you about it here).
