I am excited to say that I will be at DevNation 2016 in San Francisco with my colleague, Arun Gupta. This is a huge developer conference hosted by Red Hat.
At DevNation we'll be talking about full stack development using Node.js and a NoSQL database. In particular, the NoSQL database will be the open source Couchbase Server. Full stack development is important because you're no longer focusing on building silo'ed applications, but instead, applications that can be easily scaled for the future. The applications you build have their backend code built in the format of an API that can be accessed from a near unlimited amount of front-end platforms. The flexibility of front-end platforms is paired particularly well with the flexibility of a NoSQL JSON oriented database.
Attendees of this session can expect to walk away with knowledge on how to build an API that includes a NoSQL database that can further be accessed by a variety of front-end frameworks. The session will be code driven with examples and demos behind what is being discussed.
I'm personally excited to speak at DevNation because I absolutely love talking about modern development platforms like Node.js.
