Are you a member of an underrepresented or marginalised group? Have you always wanted to become a tech conference (or meetup) speaker? Let 2019 be the year that you make that dream a reality! Save the date - Saturday 2nd March 2019 at 2PM On Saturday 2nd March 2019 we will host the second edition of Global Diversity CFP Day following the success of the 2018 event where 53 workshops took place! In 2019 there will be numerous workshops hosted around the globe encouraging and advising newbie speakers to put together your very first talk proposal and share your own individual perspective on any subject of interest to people in tech. Each workshop will have experienced speakers on hand to: 1. give you a warm, inclusive welcome in a safe space (check out our Code of Conduct (https://www.globaldiversitycfpday.com/code-of-conduct) which all participants must adhere to) 2. mentor you with your proposal 3. provide speaking advice 4. and share their enthusiasm to get you to the stage! Subject Matter These workshops have no specific language, framework or process as a focus. Even if your talk isn’t even related to tech we want to hear from you too! In short, if there is something that you want to shout to the world we're here to help you get there regardless of the boundaries of technology or communities. Special Note: There are a few sets of stairs that lead into the VCET space. Please contact the host ahead of time if you need special needs access to the space. There is a private elevator in the back of the building but a key is needed to access it and arrangements will need to be made to have a host to get you in. This event will abide by the Global Diversity CFP Day Code of Conduct. You can review it here: https://www.globaldiversitycfpday.com/code-of-conduct

Speaker: Ian Metcalf Streams are a fundamental part of node js. They provide a powerful and performant way to process large amounts of data. Chances are you've used them and may not have even realized it. The trouble is that most sources of information on the internet are dated and don't provide current best practice. We'll dig into their history and look at how best to use streams now and in the near future. We'll also take some time to discuss the event-stream package and why it was so popular.
