Abstract: JavaScript in BlockChain
Last year, with Bitcoin's all time high and thousands of ICO developments, Blockchain became quite hot topic. This talk is a short overview of Bitcoin and Ethereum, what kind of development is possible there, what kind of JavaScript libs are available there and in what kind of projects is JavaScript most popular in Bitcoin and Ethereum communities. You can look at this talk as a short introduction to possibilities for JavaScript developers in Blockchain world.

Abstract: Managing a 120 module NPM monorepo and staying sane
For couple of years I was building infrastructure to enable developers building node-based apps/services. From the birth it was designed to be modular - which is nice on paper, but not so great in a ecosystem that does not have built-in capabilities to manage multi-module projects. So tooling had to be built. And rebuilt. Three times. I will walk you though history, evolution and current state of what we have and how we manage the beast.
