Join us for the first Nova Node Unconference!

What is an unconference?

An unconference is a conference driven by you, the participants! On the day of the conference attendees write down topics that they would like to discuss / learn about and those same attendees vote on the topics they would like to hear. Everyone learns a lot, has a ton of fun, and gets to know more people in the community!


9:00-10:00am — Check in, breakfast, and topic proposals/voting

10:00am-12:30pm — 1st round of talks / NodeSchool session

12:30-1:30pm — Lunch

1:30-3:30pm — 2nd round of talks

3:30-4:30pm — Unconference retrospective (feedback discussion)

4:30pm — Happy hour in Rosslyn!

What to bring?
Come with discussion ideas: A cool project you'd like to share, a particular challenge you faced and how you overcame it, or simply something you'd like to learn more about and get others' input!

What does it cost?
Thanks to our wonderful sponsors, the conference is free for everyone to attend!

New to Node?
The best way to learn is by doing, and with there's tons of doing to be done. We will be leading a session for anyone that would like to get learn how to get started (but don't worry, you'll still have a ton of time for unconferencing!)

Experienced with Node?
We will also run some more advanced NodeSchool electives for anyone that wants to participate in NodeSchool but has already completed the core curriculum.

We can't thank our sponsors enough:

— Fluencia, thanks for breakfast, lunch and the conference space!

Fluencia is the company behind and, the best way to learn spanish online.

— StrongLoop, thanks for the happy hour!

It's fair to say there would be little Node without StrongLoop. StrongLoop is the largest corporate contributor to Node v0.12 and the maintainer of many of the best Node.js frameworks, including Express and LoopBack.
