There are twenty-nine guest speakers for NodeConf 2013 including Isaac Z. Schlueter Creator of npm and current project leader of Node.js, Mikeal Rogers Co-founder of Gather, and Creator of request and NodeConf, James Halliday unix philosopher, co-founder of browserling.com, testling.com and .beep boop and many other top names and leaders in Cloud Technology plus a ‘top secret’ mystery guest speaker!
According to Richard Rodger, COO at nearForm, “node.js is groundbreaking technology and is championed by the major global companies attending NodeConf 2013 in Waterford. Version1 of node.js is set for release at the end of 2013.”
Richard is the former Chief Architect for TSSG, and then founding CTO for FeedHenry, Richard brought node.js into both organisations, and subsequently wrote a book on building mobile apps in the cloud for a major American technology education publishing company, before co-founding nearForm with Cian Ó Maidín. Together Richard and Cian have built a 20 person technology company in just over 18 months, founded Ireland’s node.js community and established Ireland as Europe’s center for node.js. In 2012 only 6 months old, nearForm organised the critically acclaimed NodeDublin, Europe’s first Node.js conference, run in the Guinness Store house. So successful was NodeDublin that the organisers of NodeConf, the world’s main conference run in California, asked Cian if he would take NodeConf to Europe.
