Hello all,

The Amsterdam Node Meetup will be back the 23rd of April! This time will head to the Publitas office in Amsterdam as the folks of Publitas offered to host the April edition of AMS Node Meetup! We are very thankful and like how this shows that more and more of you want to participate in the Amsterdam Node community! Publitas will take care of the location, beers, pizza's and will give a short company update of what they do and what role Node.js has in their organization.

For the April edition we have two speakers:
